The Government has produced a short community
safeguarding leaflet. This is designed to raise awareness of safeguarding risks amongst
people with public-facing roles but limited formal safeguarding training. It’s quite broad
because it covers adults without care and support needs; and children, too.
Launch of campaign to highlight the support offered by Together for those bereaved by suicide
Last year, the number of victims in the UK hit a record high, with more than 10,000 potential men, women and children of trafficking, slavery and forced labour identified. It’s feared that this is the tip of the iceberg. Whilst the numbers of victims being reported has recently eased because of the lockdown, as restrictions are relaxed and businesses, shops and factories reopen, we are likely to see a resurgence. This is an under-reported crime. Victims are vulnerable and may not actually know they are being exploited.
