Modern Slavery Protocol for Local Authorities
The Human Trafficking Foundation, together with the London Working Group, has produced several resources to help Local Authorities improve their response to human trafficking and modern slavery, in particular the identification and support offered to adult survivors.
Please see the documents below for more information:

Modern Slavery Training for Suffolk Staff
Unseen (an anti-slavery charity) is offering modern slavery training for health care workers, local authority officers and police officers across Suffolk from early September to early November in various locations. These sessions are free, funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).
Below is a flyer with links to dates and online booking.
Safe Car Wash App
A Safe Car Wash app has been launched, supported by the Gangmasters’ and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA), National Crime Agency (NCA), National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) and the Local Government Association (LGA), to help identify modern slavery in hand car washes.
Hand car washes have been identified by the GLAA as a sector where there is a higher risk of modern slavery and labour exploitation.
The Safe Car Wash app provides the public with the tools to help them identify rogue operators and report their concerns. Information will be anonymised and shared with the GLAA and NCA. The app can be downloaded for free on to Apple and Android devices via the app store.
