Grooming, and the sexual
exploitation of young vulnerable girls and boys, has been
highlighted in the public eye following recent high profile court
cases. Media interest has grown particuarly after allegations and
investigations into Jimmy Savile in 2012. Complicating public
debate have been the issues of race, ethnicity and
Human trafficking is the
illegal trade of humans into slavery for sexual exploitation,
forced labour or the removal of organs. It is second only to the
drugs trade as the largest criminal activity in the world. Although
human trafficking often involves an international cross - border
element, it is also possible to be a victim of human trafficking
within your own country.
The aims of this event are to
discuss and influence the following:
- How can organisations come
together to do more on prevention and early
- How can members of the public
do more to flag up the issues?
- How can we improve a collective
understanding of the problems and the issues?
- What strategic planning is
required by statutory agencies, including West Midlands
- How can the role and
perspective of the voluntary sector in the region be better
integrated with the statutory agencies?
In support of the Child Sexual
Exploitation and Human Trafficking Summit, West Midlands Police is
asking for the public's views on how it can be made easier for
people to report their concerns. Please fill in your answer
to the survey question below.
