Posted on October 15, 2015 by AireAdmin

Students from South Craven School will be performing a drama bases around human trafficking at Airedale Hospital next week (19 October) in support of Safeguarding Week 2015.

The performance, by the year 13 drama group at the school, will take place as part of the annual safeguarding conference at the hospital to open the event.

Debra Burgess, safeguarding children’s nurse at Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are really looking forward to having the drama students from South Craven School come to the event and show us their performance. It is extremely powerful to see a situation such as human trafficking acted out in front of you and we hope it will have an impact on the attendees.”

The conference, which is fully booked, will be attended by front line professionals from health care and other organisations and topics covered on the day will include: female genital mutilation; hate crime; human trafficking; and preventing radicalisation of vulnerable adults and / or children.

The focus of Safeguarding Week, which takes place between 19-23 October, is to provide a range of learning and development opportunities for staff and volunteers working in the sectors of safeguarding adults, domestic abuse and safeguarding children.

There will be a series of drop-in events, workshops, lectures and training over the week to promote safeguarding awareness across the Bradford district. For further information on activities over the week please visit www.bradford-scb.org.uk
