Exploitation: It is closer than you think! - Course for practitioners

To be exploited is to be taken advantage of for somebody else’s gain

People of any age can be exploited in many different ways.  They may not recognise or report it for themselves, and the way in which you react and respond will make a difference.  This course will examine the ways in which adults, young people and children are being exploited in Slough and assist you in responding appropriately.  Learn about a variety of terms including:  Trafficking, cuckooing, county lines, modern slavery, domestic servitude and more.

Who is this course for?

Anyone who has contact with children, young people or adults within our local community. The training is provided by Nicola Bell, manager of The Willow Project, a Thames Valley wide service providing support to victims of exploitation, and April McCoig, Thames Valley Police’s Anti-Slavery Co-ordinator.


To create a critical mass of people in Slough who can recognise exploitation and respond to it, increasing quality and frequency of response.
