Partnership key areas of focus

The Hull Collaborative Exploitation Group

Hull is the city where Wilberforce gave birth to the abolition of slavery. Today exploitation takes many guises and is forever changing requiring a flexible definition. We collaborate to end new forms of exploitation that impact on the lives of many of our vulnerable residents. Our members are representatives from organisations and agencies, we meet at least every 2 months. We also arrange meetings for urgent/emergencies and to form task and finish groups. We report to the Hull Collaborative Partnership.

Our Aims

Our primary objectives are to provide an effective multi-agency response to all forms of exploitation by -

  • identifying the scope of the problem
  • determining an outcome/impact focused action plan to tackle the issues
  • implementing a prioritised response focusing on all aspects
