Can You Identify A Human Trafficking Victim?

Human trafficking victims are not only found chained to a bed in a brothel. In our daily lives we come across victims without even knowing it.

This FREE course discusses the main types of human trafficking in the UK and Europe including trafficking for:

  • Labour

  • Benefit fraud

  • Organ Harvesting

  • Domestic Servitude

  • Adoption

  • Sex

  Are you able to identify if the person who comes to you as a client, detainee, inmate, service user is also a victim?  Are you aware that they may be entitled to additional protection (including accommodation and financial support) due to their possible victim status?  Are you able to identify the signs of human trafficking?

This training session, which is funded by a charitable grant is provided by Migrant Help, free of charge. It not only provides information on the human trafficking indicators but also covers the additional protection and support available for potential victims of human trafficking and how to access that support.

Who Should Attend? Anyone who may come in contact with potential victims – members of the legal profession, law enforcement, law students, advice agencies advisors, police station and prison visitors, health professionals, probation officers, prison officers, magistrates and judges, and anyone intending to enter any of these professions.
