Victims of Modern Slavery Workshop – A FREE Training event from MVA, Autumn 2023

MVA, in partnership with Medway and Swale Health & Care Partnership (HCP) and the Community Health Catalyst Programme, are running a workshop to educate stakeholders on the subject of modern slavery.

The number of potential victims of modern slavery identified in the UK continues to rise, with forced labour being a hidden crime carried out by criminal gangs and other manipulative individuals.

By identifying what modern slavery is, and how to spot the common signs that someone is a victim in community, frontline and similar operators can help toward pursuing offenders, and safeguard victims.

And this action can also work towards preventing more vulnerable people from becoming victims.

In partnership with Medway & Swale HCP and the Community Health Catalyst Programme, MVA are running a FREE workshop to educate attendees on the subject of modern slavery.

The training will cover topics including:
  • Organised crime groups.
  • The picture across Kent and Medway including real case examples.
  • Typology of modern slavery (17 types- but main ones are labour, criminal sexual and domestic servitude)
  • The NRM process and how that works.
  • Do’s and don’ts around working with the clients.
  • Aspects that make victims vulnerable - which will relate to every service offered in the areas you are looking to help/support.
Aimed at frontline workers, this training would also benefit other interested parties who work in and around this area.

The training will be delivered by Paul Withrington who is highly knowledgeable in the subject.

This FREE event will be held at the University of Kent campus in Chatham (ME4 4AG) on THURSDAY 14th DECEMBER from 9.30am till 1pm.
