Why attend now?
You may not be fully aware that all organisations need to recognise and engage with all aspects of safeguarding, which includes learning how to integrate modern slavery risks into your safeguarding protocols and recruitment processes.
Organisations have for some time recognised the need to implement safeguarding protocols to mitigate risk. There is now a need to update these protocols to include all dimensions of modern slavery risk.
There is a planned review of the Modern Slavery Act in 2020, which will increase scrutiny of business compliance. The 2014 Care Act already specifies modern slavery as a safeguarding concern. However, this has yet to be adequately covered in most safeguarding training.
After attending this workshop, participants will:
-Build on your existing knowledge of safeguarding protocols
– Carry out all their safeguarding responsibilities for children and vulnerable adults
– Understand that modern slavery is a significant safeguarding risk factor and appreciate the ways that these risks can be mitigated
– Learn how to identify modern slavery risks in recruitment
– Develop the due diligence procedures to address these risks with a business specific action plan
– Go beyond compliance and consider the potential for wider engagement on modern slavery with partner organisations
