Identifying Victims of Human Trafficking & Modern Slavery Training

A facilitated session to aid attendees in identifying victims of human trafficking & modern slavery to enable them to refer them to apropriate support services. Training will be presented by Hope4Justice.

This training is a must for anyone working or volunteering with vulnerable people, migrants, refugees, child protection services, victims of sexual abuse etc. Victims are rarely in positions to report their abuse so it is important that key workers that may come into contact with them are able to identify victims quickly and are able to refer them to the most apropriate support services before they are put in further danger or retrafficked.

Free tickets are available for Community and voluntary sector sector stakeholders. There are limited availablity. Individuals who book a place who we are not aquainted with will be asked to confirm their field of work or volunteering to avoid identification/support techniques etc falling into the wrong hands.
