It is a difficult time for local authority leaders, elected members, and officials, as they look to balance the books and prioritise services. Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking is one amongst many urgent and complex issues councils will have to navigate, often without specialist and continued support and training.

As a council leader, member, or official are you looking to understand your own and your colleagues awareness of the crimes of slavery and trafficking, how they can present or disguise within your local communities, and the pathways to freedom for survivors you can support within your area?

Sophie Hayes Foundation offers a tailored training and development to local authorities in their efforts to build understanding and nuanced approaches to counter exploitation and support survivors.
