Free webinar to help you identify and support trafficked children
A free Community Care webinar in November will help social workers ensure they are up to date with legislation, guidance and best practice to protect victims of child trafficking.
Swati Pande, assistant manager of the NSPCC Child Trafficking Advice Centre, will lead the one hour webinar on Thursday 17 November and share pointers and case examples to help you address this complex area of practice.
The number of children identified as being trafficked into and within the UK is rising – 982 potential victims under the age of 18 were referred to the National Crime Agency in 2015, over double the number referred in 2013. The actual numbers of child and adult trafficking victims may be considerably higher than official figures, European Commission reports suggest.
