What is the National Referral Mechanism?
The National Referral Mechanism (NRM) is a framework for identifying victims of human trafficking and ensuring they receive appropriate protection and Government-funded support. It is also the mechanism through which the Government collects data about victims. The information helps build a clearer picture of human trafficking in the UK.

unseen and the nrm
Unseen is a first responder. We work with victims to establish what help and support might be available.
However, during the NRM period, Unseen supports potential victims via our safehouses and outreach projects.
Unseen can also advise victims on reintegrating into the UK or returning home.
If an individual does not want to give their name or personal details it will not affect the guidance we can offer them.
