Modern slavery virtual training

Update from Safer North East Lincolnshire:

The UK government estimates that there are tens of thousands of people in slavery in Britain today.

UK nationals make up the biggest group of potential victims. Slavery is happening in North East Lincolnshire.

To help tackle modern slavery we are providing free training for statutory bodies, businesses and voluntary / charitable organisations in North East Lincolnshire.

These sessions are designed as brief interventions until we are able to provide the taught 2 hour awareness sessions again at Grimsby Town Hall. They will be online ‘webinar’ type sessions and be held on Microsoft Teams. You will be sent joining instructions prior to the date booked.

The training will present a brief overview of modern slavery and human trafficking, the national strategy, signs to spot, the Modern Slavery Act and the national referral mechanism.

There are 3 general sessions as well as sessions targeted to health professionals, those working with young people or children and those within the housing sector. The sessions will be very similar so please only book onto the most appropriate session for your area of work.

The training will be approx. 40 minutes

Dates are:

  • Monday 18th January at 11am – modern slavery training – health focus
  • Thursday 4th February at 2pm – modern slavery training – general

In addition I am facilitating some modern slavery workshop sessions. These sessions will use real life case studies and look at the vulnerabilities of victims and explore possible interventions.

It is recommended that you will have attended one of the previous training sessions or have some knowledge of modern slavery in order to participate in these workshop sessions. . They will be online sessions and be held on Microsoft Teams. You will be sent joining instructions prior to the date booked.
