Thursday 8 February, 1:30PM-4:30PM | No5 Barristers’ Chambers, 4-7 Salisbury Court, London EC47 8AA
Topics and Speakers
Delivered by Jennifer Blair who specialises in women’s rights and cases involving vulnerable clients, and Tara Topteagarden, Trafficked Children’s Adviser at the Refugee Council, this seminar will cover:
- Defining victims of human trafficking and thresholds for positive identifications;
- The National Referral Mechanism;
- Key immigration implications of being identified as a victim of trafficking, including kinds of application and raising trafficking in appeals and judicial review;
- Child and adult case studies;
- Working with survivors in light of specific vulnerabilities, including mental health and detention;
- The practicalities of working in this area, including funding for legal aid.
This training is aimed at legal advisers, voluntary sector workers and social workers and is aimed at those with a moderate level of experience of working with forced migrants and trafficking survivors. However, it will begin with the definitions of trafficking and so is also suitable for those with a basic knowledge of the subject material.
