Understanding trafficking

Eaves provides bespoke training packages on identifying and supporting victims of trafficking to both statutory and non-statutory agencies. Tailor-made training packages can be provided from half a day to 2 days, depending on the needs of the agency/organisation. Eaves Poppy Project has been providing training on trafficking for over 10 years. In 2013 Poppy was commissioned by the Home Office to design and deliver training tailored specifically to frontline professionals. This training was designed specifically for law enforcement, prison and probation teams and health professionals. Feedback for the training was very positive with, 100% of attendees at all levels finding the training useful, 100% reporting an increased awareness of trafficking and 100% feeling better equipped to respond to potential victims of trafficking.

Eaves Poppy Project has delivered numerous training sessions to charities and NGOs working on issues of violence against women, criminal justice, migration and asylum and has designed training packages for Local Authorities. The training is CPD accredited.

New course! Trafficking Legal Duties and the Modern Slavery Act: preparing for change

The Eaves Poppy Project now offers training focusing on the legal duties to working around trafficking, which is run by experienced lawyers. This course is designed for organisations who work with victims of trafficking, or potential victims of trafficking, or who are statutory agencies with duties around trafficking.

This training is designed to give you:

  • An understanding of the current system for identification and support for victims of trafficking.
  • An awareness of, and ability to respond to, the forthcoming changes from the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and changes to the NRM.
  • An improved awareness of situations and indicators of trafficking.
  • An understanding of the legal duties and obligations within the current National Referral Mechanism.
  • An ability to create internal procedures that reflect obligations to victims of trafficking.

This course can be tailored to include a more in depth focus from the Poppy Project Understanding Trafficking training, and can be run in conjunction with this training or separate to it. The training is designed to run as a full day or can be adapted to give a shorter or longer course. We can deliver this training in-house at your organisation.
