modern day slavery & the National Referral mechanism
Our Modern Day Slavery and the National Referral Mehanism module introduces the legislative and policy frameworks around modern slavery, trafficking and the role of the National Referral Mechanism in the context of county lines exploitation. Using reflective tools and case studies, this module supports increased knowledge and awareness in both theory and practice. Participants will come away with increased knowledge and confidence in how this legislation can support young women, whilst also considering potential barriers and risks.
