Detail:

Modern slavery is a term that encapsulates human trafficking, slavery, servitude and forced labour. It is a crime where vulnerable people are:

  • Deprived of their freedom because of the actions of another person,
  • Treated as commodities,
  • Exploited for financial gain

You might think that slavery ended with abolition in the 19th century. Yet, there are still millions of men, women and children around the world being forced into slavery. In the UK alone, there is estimated to be around 136,000* people in slavery, with 1 in every 4 of those victims being a child. It can affect anyone, in any industry and in any part of the world.

This Online session will assist with raising your awareness in your professional capacity and personal life.
