We will have the opportunity to share disruption practice from around the country, highlighting strategies that have been effective in tackling exploitation.

The aim of this webinar, delivered by NWG’s Police & Justice Lead Matt Thompson along with our trainer Sarah Brown, is to share practice and experiences between agencies and empower agencies to consider disruption opportunities to prevent exploitation and disrupt perpetrators.
