Human trafficking - Brentwood

Request

As you may know, the Salvation Army is managing the delivery of the Ministry of Justice's contract for adult human trafficking victim care in England and Wales. We are keen to engage with local authorities in order to ensure effective liaison with them in delivering the service and to this end it would be helpful to have the following information:

1. Is there an officer who leads for the Council on human trafficking? If so, it would be very helpful to have his/her contact details.

2. If there is no specific lead on human trafficking, it would be helpful to have the contact details of those responsible for work relating to human trafficking (involving either adults or children) within the Council (and the local Safeguarding Children Board and Safeguarding Adults Board, if different).

3. It would also be useful to have details of your main contact(s) on human trafficking within the local police.

3. Does the Council have a cross departmental strategy/action plan on human trafficking? If so, we should be very interested to have a copy.

4. If you do not have a cross departmental strategy/action plan, is strategy on human trafficking included in departmental strategies/plans? If so, we would be very glad to have copies of the relevant sections of these.

This information is held by Essex County Council. If you want information please contact FOI.requestSCF@esssex.gov.uk

Please contact Essex Police directly as their has been a recent restructure
4. Does the Council have a cross departmental  strategy/action plan on human trafficking? If so, we should be very interested to have a copy. 
No. 
5. If  you do not have a cross departmental strategy/action plan, is strategy on human trafficking included in departmental strategies/plans? If so, we would be very glad to have copies of the relevant sections of these. 
This would be a countywide strategy and therefore be done through Essex County Council and not at Borough or District level.
