Description

Robin is a Director and Chair of the Cheshire Anti-Slavery Network.

Robin joined Thames Valley Police in 1990, and went on to work for the National Crime Squad, Anti-Corruption Command within the Metropolitan Police, and the Serious Organised Crime Agency.

He worked within the Enforcement Directorate as an SIO, and later within the Intelligence Directorate working within the organised immigration crime command. Robin was then seconded to the United Kingdom Human Trafficking Centre (UKHTC) before leaving SOCA in 2011 to set up his own company.  

Together with Tatiana Jardan (formerly of the Human Trafficking Foundation) he founded and Co-Chairs and Coordinates the National Network Coordinators Forum. The Forum was set up to bring together Network Coordinators within the UK to identify good practice, trends in trafficking and information exchange, feeding into national strategic forums. Robin also sits on the National Training Delivery Group. 

Robin is very much victim focused and endorses the view that partnerships are essential to identify and rescue victims of modern slavery. Critical parties are from all sectors including business and third sector NGOs.

He also recognises that partnerships contribute to an increase in investigations, prosecutions and convictions, reducing slavery in Cheshire and further afield.

Robin enjoys running and cycling, organising fundraising events and keeps bees as a hobby.
