Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Basic Awareness

Event Code OT 19/2325
Event Description This 2.5 hour workshop is for WSCC and local authority staff and partners agencies to increase awareness about Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking.

Modern Slavery is a priority for the West Sussex Safer Communities Partnership as one of the areas of high risk due to the severe and long term impact that it has upon the vulnerable, which includes the exploitation of men, women and children, and the need for a multi-agency response to tackle it effectively.

Modern Slavery is also a type of abuse within the Care Act 2014 that provides the statutory footing for adult safeguarding responses.

Under the Modern Slavery Act 2015, local authorities have a duty to notify the Home Office of any individual encountered in England and Wales who they believe is a suspected victim of slavery or human trafficking.
