Modern slavery is an international problem, it is about the exploitation of other people with the purpose of making money. It’s big business with an estimated £150 billion dollars being made each year fromforced labour.

You may have heard about cases in the news where victims have been forced to work on farms, nails bars, restaurants, and car washes, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. Social care, domestic servitude, sex trafficking (including children), debt bondage, criminal exploitation are just a few other areas where modern slavery is happening.

This course will help to raise awareness of modern slavery, the different types, where it happens and how to recognise and refer a person if you have concerns.
