Upcoming Online Forum for Front-Line Professionals

 

Improving the Response to Child Victims of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking (MSHT)

This online forum is intended to support front-line professionals who 

might encounter child victims of MSHT in the course of their work 

and/or have responsibilities to ensure their well-being.

It offers front-line professionals the opportunity to access insights from the work of ECPATUK and the IASC on child trafficking in the UK in 2021,  highlighting key elements of their snapshot report including policy developments, promising practice to safeguard and support children and recommendations for the future.

It also introduces professionals to the role paediatricians can play in addressing child MSHT, based on the guidance prepared by Dr Laura Wood and Dr Sarah Boutros for the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.

Finally, it highlights the knowledge and skills professionals need in order to prevent, support and care for child victims of trafficking and modern slavery, with reference to the new Skills for Care and Development Child Training Framework. 

This on-line forum is also intended for those who are interested in improving their understanding of child modern slavery and trafficking and best practice.
