Stage: In progress

Due date: 31 March 2020

Percentage complete: 0%

Comments:

In addition to the update provided at end of Q1 which comprises ongoing work, there are additional updates as follows:

The CSP has agreed that its top priority for the next 3 years will be to 'Tackle the Exploitation of Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults'. It aims to do this by:

  • maximising the use of criminal and civil powers to target-harden areas and deter offenders
  • drive improved identification of victims
  • provide enhanced levels of immediate and sustained support
  • make sure that the community is equipped to recognise and report exploitation and know how to minimise risk to children, young people and vulnerable people

 These aims will be monitored quarterly in terms of progress indicators.

The Home Office recently granted police forces a fund of money (Serious Violence Surge Fund) to prevent knife crime and associated violence, particularly among young people. Consultations are taking place in this regard and it is likely to include mentoring and coaching for those young people who are most at risk and engaging in this behaviour.

Identification and training of Modern Slavery champions within key service areas of the council is due to begin early next year together with continued awareness training for council practitioners and partners

The work of the Early Intervention Youth Fund continues in Bracknell Forest and a number of young people have been worked with by Berkshire Youth in Bracknell Forest since the start of the year. Practitioner training on gangs took place on 7 October (with a session to follow on 7 November).

The Modern Slavery and Exploitation Strategic Group has established 4 sub-groups to drive the work of the group forward with the main priority being to focus on council's statutory requirements as per the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
