Modern slavery - Awareness information workshop for social care providers - Webinar on Zoom – 7th June, 13.30 – 15.00
Providing modern slavery awareness is key to increasing victim identification and helping survivors to access statutory support. Everyone has a role in spotting the signs of modern slavery and responding to it, and we have a shared duty of care to ensure that people arriving in the UK from Ukraine, and other countries, are protected from the risk of abuse, harm or neglect.
This informative workshop is for social care providers interested in understanding more about modern slavery in the UK today and helping to identify when someone might be a victim of modern slavery.
The session will be led by Hestia, leading provider of modern slavery support in London and the South East, who provide CPD-accredited training on modern slavery packages to professionals across the UK.
This workshop, hosted by Skills for Care and the National Care Forum (NCF), will be invaluable to those in supervisory or workforce development roles in adult social care. Attendees will gain a wider knowledge of the dynamics at play in modern slavery situations, help in identifying red flags and how to signpost to the relevant services.
Attendees will also take away with them practical tools including Hestia's 'spot the signs' toolkit.
