The training is designed for front line workers and those who manage them to myth bust and help workers understand what this area of crime is about, what factors make people vulnerable, as well as considering the victim’s perspective such as the barriers to disclosure.
Professionals from a huge range of departments and organisations have the potential to come into contact with a victim of Modern Slavery, from those with roles in Safeguarding and Housing, to those in Planning, Trading Standards and Environmental Health and other organisations that deal with the public.
The 3 hour session will help you understand the risks, be aware of signs you may spot in your work capacity, what you can do about it and give you information about the referral process for support.
If your work puts you in possible contact with situations where you may see signs of exploitation then this training will be extremely valuable to you. You do not need to have any prior knowledge of modern slavery or exploitation.
