Together we are Forbes

Wednesday 16 October 2019

Scunthorpe United F.C, Glanford Park, Jack Brownsword Way, Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, DN15 8TD

Cuckooing and county lines are becoming very prominent issues in our communities.

Forbes Solicitors, along with the Regional Organised Crime Unit and other partner agencies will focus on the role of Registered Housing Providers in tackling these issues and keeping vulnerable people safe.

This event will be an opportunity for delegates to increase their awareness of cuckooing and county lines. It will also explore the use of housing and criminal legislation available and identify support options.

Throughout the day, we will hear from housing practitioners and police colleagues from Humberside, Lincolnshire and elsewhere in the UK about the challenges that they currently face. This will highlight how successful outcomes have been achieved through effective information sharing and multi-agency working.9.00am Coffee & Registration
