Medaille Trust presentation on human trafficking and modern day slavery in Lancashire, focusing particularly on sexual exploitation, delivered to 200 plus year 11s in four, 55 minute sessions. The presentation used the Unchosen film Let’s Talk about Sex and the Home Office/Unchosen film Modern Day Slavery is Closer Than You Think, along with local information from Police and newspapers, to raise awareness of the issue and alert pupils to the signs of modern slavery. Each student was given a Medaille newsletter and a Medaille card with the general signs to look out for and what to do if people see something. During the lunch period a member of staff manned a Medaille stall in the main hall, with Mama Margaret’s jewellery and trafficking information.
