Dear Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust,

• Is there training provided to NON-CLINICAL FRONT-FACING staff about human trafficking and modern slavery in your Trust?
• If training is delivered in your Trust, which staff receive or are eligible to receive this training? Is the training compulsory and how is attendance / completion measured? What format does this training take (e.g. e-learning, face-to-face, etc.)? How long does the training take to complete?
• If there is no training in your Trust, is human trafficking incorporated into a safeguarding training programme or policy? If it is part of a safeguarding programme, does that programme also include a section on the Prevent policy?
• For either stand-alone training or training which is incorporated into a safeguarding programme or policy (please specify which): Are staff trained in potential clinical indicators for human trafficking victims? Are staff trained in who to refer a potential human trafficking case to? Are staff trained on the questions to ask to ascertain whether a patient is a victim of human trafficking? How often is the training completed?

Yours faithfully,

Ruth Atkinson

Dear FOI Shropcom,

Thank you for this. You wrote:

"All non-clinical staff receive level 1 adult/child Safeguarding training in the Trust.

Face to face level 2 safeguarding training delivered in-house covers this topic"

If non-clinical front-facing staff only receive level 1 training, then does this mean that they get no training on human trafficking?

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours sincerely,

Ruth Atkinson

FOI Shropcom,

Dear Ms Atkinson

Level 1 training does not cover human trafficking so all non-clinical staff do not get the training as a matter of routine. Managers identify and assess non-clinical staff and depending on their role this training will be offered to them.

However, non-clinical administrative staff for safeguarding children's team, Family Nurse Partnership and Looked After Children access the training which includes human trafficking and modern slavery.
