Tackling Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Conference
“It is hard to comprehend that such sickening and inhuman crimes are lurking in the shadows of our country. From nail bars and car washes to sheds and rundown caravans, people are enduring experiences that are simply horrifying in their inhumanity.” – Prime Minister Theresa May
The most recent Government estimates suggest that there are up to 13,000 victims of human trafficking in the UK. New legislation, including the Modern Slavery Act, has seen an increase in prosecutions and a 40% rise in the number of victims being identified, but there is still more to do. Britain has lead the world in introducing measures to bring an end to modern slavery by appointing an Anti-Slavery Commissioner, investing in international programmes and requiring businesses to ensure supply chain transparency. Despite this progress, statistics shows that six out of 43 police forces did not record a single modern slavery crime in 2015/16, suggesting an inconsistent approach to the problem across the UK.
Join us for the Tackling Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Conference where leading experts will explain what your organisation can do to help protect the most vulnerable. Understand the implications of the latest Government policy, the health sector can play in identifying victims and how the private and public sectors can collaborate to stamp out modern slavery and the role local councils.
