Human trafficking in the construction industry

21 June 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


In anticipation of the passing of the Human Trafficking and Exploitation (Scotland) Act 2016, Wendy Henderson worked with Edinburgh’s Child and Adult Protection Committees to promote the city’s Human Trafficking and Exploitation Multi Agency Protocol and began to deliver a series of human trafficking and exploitation awareness sessions in 2015.

To avoid duplication of effort and to ensure that key organisations worked together across the city, a multi-agency working group was established in 2016 and endorsed as a formal sub group of the Edinburgh’s Public Protection Committees, reporting to the Chief Officers’ Group for Public Protection.

In coordinating the work of the sub group Wendy has placed Edinburgh in a position of strength to develop policy and practice locally to respond to and exceed the expectations of the national strategy which was laid before Parliament in May 2017.
