Modern Slavery Awareness
What is Modern Slavery?
Modern Slavery is the slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking of individuals through the use of coercion, deception, force or other means. Slavery is an inhumane crime and often affects the most vulnerable people in society, with victims ranging from the very young to the very elderly.
The consequences of modern slavery are immensely devastating to their victims, who are often unable or unwilling to speak out about the trauma they are facing or have faced in the past.
What is the purpose of this Modern Slavery course?
This modern slavery course focuses mainly around the practices within the United Kingdom, and is aimed at helping staff recognise the signs that someone has been trafficked or is being exploited in order to confidently take the appropriate action.
In the UK, an estimated 136,000 people were victims of modern slavery as of 2018, indicating the large and growing prevalence of the crime in the country. This modern slavery course will provide knowledge and resources for all staff in helping to tackle the crime.
