Forum - Workshop

9.30am to 4.30pm

On Saturday the 29th March, Frodsham Churches Together along with the Salvation Army will run a Forum - Workshop on Anti Human Trafficking. A lot has been heard about Human Trafficking in recent times from the media. Unfortunately according to those who research this, it is only the tip of a very large problem.
The Forum is an opportunity for members of Churches across Cheshire and other individuals to find out more and to make a positive response in their communities. The Forum will be led by Major Anne Read of the Salvation Army, their National Anti-Trafficking Response Coordinator.
The day will try to explain what Human Trafficking is and what is being done to help victims. What type of support is needed from the church and others locally and nationally. Given the size of the problem, Churches and other organisations, have to unite to fight this, just as they have done with issues such as world poverty.
During the day questions will be asked, such as “what can we do“? Examples will be available of responses already made by churches and other organisations. The day therefore will provide those attending with some understanding of the issues, see what is being done and hopefully identify how some ideas can be put into action on a local and county basis.
From this it is possible, in line with other groups that are meeting nationally, to discuss these issues so that a local plan may develop. If you think you may like to attend or find out more then please contact Frodsham Churches Together at: firstname.lastname@example.org
