The UK government has not appointed a National Rapporteur. However, the role of a National Rapporteur is primarily exercised by the Inter-Departmental Ministerial Group (IDMG). The IDMG is supported in this by the UK Human Trafficking Centre (UKHTC); UK Border Agency and the NGO Stakeholder Group.
The IDMG has responsibility for strategic oversight and monitoring of UK policy on human trafficking, as well as data collection and analysis. However, data collection on human trafficking in the UK is a key responsibility of the UKHTC in conjunction with law enforcement agencies. The UKHTC also acts as a central point of coordination for intelligence, analysis and operational activities around human trafficking. It works very closely with law enforcement agencies throughout the country and with non-governmental organisations as well as the Home Office.
