Caritas Salford Anti-Trafficking presentation on human trafficking and modern day slavery in Lancashire, focusing particularly on sexual exploitation, delivered  to around 150 year 12s in three 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.  A key feature in the presentation was the Pan Lancashire Anti-Slavery Partnership Freedom Days (formerly termed “roadshows”), the most recent one in Blackburn and the next in Preston on November 24.   Each student was given a card to recognise the signs of human trafficking, and handouts about car washes and nail bars.  During the lunch period there was a Caritas Anti-Trafficking stall with leaflets and information.
