Vulnerability Advisory Group response to Home Office comments on secure reporting

September 2022

Members of the Vulnerability Advisory Group have responded to the Home Office’s comments on secure reporting in their response to the UCL/ IASC report on the roundtable on the war in Ukraine and associated risks of human trafficking and exploitation, raising concerns that they display a misunderstanding of the meaning and implications of secure reporting and ignore the considerable evidence previously put to them about the need for secure reporting to safeguard victims of crime by ensuring that their personal data is not shared with immigration enforcement without their consent. Members of the group invite the Home Office to revisit its response and create a forum for dialogue on secure reporting, including as it pertains to the impact of the war in Ukraine.
