Conference on Modern Child Slavery Today

A one-day conference exploring the causes and consequences of trafficking on children and young people

On 3 October 2016, we hosted together with our partners – MiCLU, ECPAT UK, The Children’s Society and The Helen Bamber Foundation – a one-day conference for front line practitioners (police; social workers; lawyers, health workers), policy officers and academics to explore the causes and consequences of trafficking on children and young people.

The conference aimed to promote the development of holistic integrated interdisciplinary approaches to working with young people who have been trafficked from overseas and to stress the importance of finding durable solutions for them, increasing their protection in the present and for the future.

Our young community members played an important role in voicing their experiences and in advocating for change. Watch a film that they made for the conference.
