Modern Slavery conference success
12th April 2016
In March 2016, the SAB, in partnership with the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB) and the East Sussex Safer Communities Partnership, hosted a conference that was open to any professional working with children and/or adults.
The event, held in Eastbourne, focussed on ‘Modern Slavery, Human Trafficking and Missing People’, and included speakers from Sussex Police and UK charities ‘Missing People’ and ‘A21’. Over 130 delegates attended, representing a broad range of agencies supporting vulnerable adults and children. The event was held to raise awareness of these topics, especially as ‘Modern Slavery’ is now a type of abuse in it’s own right under the Care Act, and was a partnership event in recognition that these issues can affect all ages and family units.
