One of the Partnership's main priorities is to raise awareness and ensure frontline professionals, those working in the community, and the general public know how to spot the signs of modern slavery and respond appropriately. We are continuously working with our partners to identify and address gaps in resources and training.
The Partnership provides training and is available to attend relevant speaking engagements to raise awareness and increase understanding of modern slavery.
Training can be flexible to suit your organisation’s needs and time frame, but always aims to be interactive, relevant and engaging. Previous training has been delivered to local authorities, health services, NGOs and students.
Get in touch with the partnership coordinator to discuss your training needs.
