Homelessness is an outcome and a driver of modern slavery.
This toolkit has been developed to equip homelessness organisations, local authorities and frontline workers with templates and documentation to create modern slavery services and multi-agency partnerships.
Councils might also find these documents helpful to consider for a wider cohort of vulnerable adults.
Together we can build a better support network for survivors of modern slavery.
It is recommended that practitioners complete The Passage Modern Slavery Training Programme in order to implement this toolkit effectively.
The Toolkit explained
This toolkit is formed of five sections, each containing the templates and documentation needed to create multi-agency partnerships to support victims of modern slavery at the point of identification, and to provide frontline support to survivors.
1) Modern Slavery Service overview
Read our Modern Slavery Protocol (what is The Passage Modern Slavery Service), the descriptions of our two main projects within the service: the Modern Slavery Navigator and our Multi-Agency Case Conference (MACC) approach for holistic immediate support.

2) Partnership agreement templates
Improve your local partnerships’ response to modern slavery. You can find templates to formalise partnerships with local authorities and other organisations. These agreements are proven to be successful and are in use by The Passage, Westminster City Council and two safe houses in London.

3) Frontline work templates
