‘Labour exploitation in the care sector’- FREE webinar

Labour exploitation in the care sector, both domiciliary care and private care settings, is a growing mode of modern slavery, and one which many of our staff may be able to identify and/or raise concerns about as they may visit people’s homes and care settings.
There is an upcoming lunch and learn event which will focus on this topic in more detail. The event will be facilitated by Simon Watson – Regional Field Intelligence Officer for the Yorkshire and Humber Region of the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA).
The aim of the session is to raise awareness about labour exploitation in the care sector, and the session can be attended by health and social care professionals, as well as any other person who may find this topic relevant to their role.
The webinar will take place on Tuesday 12th March 2023, 12pm-1pm (online).
