Modern Slavery – Update

While the majority of the country are focused on the emerging health crisis, victims of modern slavery or those who are vulnerable will not disappear (they are more at risk than those of us who have an income and family). It is certain that at the end of this crisis there will still be a people who wish to make money out of the illegal treatment of others.

The Together Network has the contacts and resources to develop practical responses at local level. Working with partners we develop and support projects, and share our experiences and models of best practice with communities which are looking for ways to tackle the issues.
