Modern Slavery is a complex crime and public organisations have a duty to notify and include due diligence activities in their operations regarding Modern Slavery and Potential Victims of Trafficking.

This webinar will focus on all aspects of Modern Slavery, particularly the measures that should be taken in order to identify and safeguard potential victims including the National Referral Mechanism process and referrals to Adult and Child Safeguarding.

The webinar will be presented on Skype (audio) using a specially prepared PowerPoint presentation, interspersed with Question and Answer sessions.

To be able to participate in this webinar you must have the following:
  • Access to a computer,
  • Access to the Internet,
  • A web camera with microphone.

  • The webinar will be accompanied by a detailed workbook (also in PowerPoint format), which will be emailed to you before the session, and which you can use for preliminary reading and as a memo for links to extra resources and information.
