Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery Law:
An overview for support professionals


Covering definitions and indicators of slavery, the legal framework, the NRM, evidence, legal challenges, legal aid, support and referrals. This training is suitable for both experienced support workers and new members of staff. ATLEU is the only charity in the UK who delivers a comprehensive and dedicated service, exclusively to survivors, helping them find legal solutions to their complex problems. By starting from the original sources of law that underpin the UK trafficking identification and support process, this training will give support providers the confidence to understand and advocate for legal rights for survivors. The law on human trafficking and modern slavery is constantly changing; this overview training is also an opportunity for experienced support workers to keep up to date on legal and policy developments. There will be interactive case studies, a Q&A in the chat box with a second Solicitor from ATLEU, and also an opportunity for questions after the presentation.
