Expert Advice For Criminal Law 

The SIPPS helps investigators and Prosecutors understand the cultural and social backgrounds of victims of exploitation, the dynamics of the abusive relationship, and current behavioural presentations. 
This helps to inform the investigation, identifies the safety needs of victims, and enables Prosecutors to present a case narrative that is most accessible to a jury. 


Craig Barlow Consultancy & Training regularly provides advice and guidance in complex cases of Trafficking, Modern Slavery, Domestic Servitude and Sexual Exploitation, Stalking Harassment and Violence. 
We undertake management reviews of case work and investigations, help develop safeguarding protocols, and offer advice on staff safety. 

Professional Supervision 

We are pleased to offer specialist clinical supervision to Social Workers and other Health Care Professionals at all levels of experience with regard to Trafficking and Modern Slavery Issues, Sexual and Non-Sexual Violence, Risk Assessment and Management. 

Expert Advice for Civil Law 

We provide Forensic risk assessments for Local Authorities, Employment Tribunals and The Family Courts. 
Increasingly, The Family Courts are ordering ABE Style Interviews and Assessments. With 25 years experience of Investigative Social Work and Delivering ABE Training to Police Officers and Social Workers, Craig Barlow is responding to this need with one Family Court Barrister describing his evidence as "Fantastic".
