Modern Slavery Awareness


BackgroundCourse Overview

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.
