CIEH is proud to launch our Modern Day Slavery Conference, which will look at strategies to work collaboratively with multi-agencies in the prevention and management of modern day slavery. This topical conference will also discuss the key role local authorities play in tackling modern day slavery, and the actions environmental health practitioners should take after identifying potential victims of modern slavery during their routine inspections on food, residential and business premises.

You will hear from expert speakers who are leading the fight against modern day slavery by working with stakeholders to effectively identify, rescue, support, rehabilitate people affected and prosecute offenders.

Key topics include:

  • Lessons Learnt from Multi- Agency Rescue and Recovery Planning
  • Challenging Modern Slavery - Tackling Transparency in Supply Chains
  • Combatting Trafficking: Metropolitan Police’s Collaborative Approach
