First Responder Training If you are from an organisation authorised to refer potential victims of modern slavery into the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) you may undertake First Responder training. The role of the First Responder is to identify and refer potential victims of modern slavery into support, where appropriate. Doing so will often be challenging and you may have to deal with complex situations. This programme provides guidance on how to spot the signs of modern slavery, and what to do when you come across a potential victim of modern slavery. This programme aims to give you confidence to follow procedures swiftly and with compassion. The course takes around 45 minutes to complete.
