The event will be led by Cristina Talens, a director of Modern Slavery Risk Assessments at Hull University’s Wilberforce Institute. Her work includes social audit assignments and risk assessments on behalf of businesses. She will be joined by Trish Leivesley, team leader of the Home Office-funded Graft project in North East Lincolnshire, tackling child criminal exploitation.
