Government is making every effort to ensure those affected are aware of the back-payment scheme.

We will be sending out personalised letters to all those affected, notifying them of the amount they are entitled to and when they will receive the payment. If an individual believes they are eligible but does not receive a letter, they can complete an application form. Further information is available on gov.uk (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/claim-a-subsistence-rates-back-payment-victims-of-modern-slavery).

We are also working with NRM support providers and other stakeholders to ensure as many victims as possible are aware of this process.
