It is estimated that Modern Slavery affects tens of thousands of people in the UK today. So, you are likely to come across victims of Modern Slavery in your work. The two training sessions are:
Awareness Training – this is designed for front line workers and those who manage them to myth bust and help you understand what this area of crime is about, and to understand the factors that make people vulnerable and how you could identify risks etc.
First Responder (NRM) Training – this is designed for anyone who has completed the Modern Slavery Awareness training and is a First Responder. It covers the use of the National Referral Mechanism (NRM).
