Modern Slavery Training: this is part of our Freedom from Slavery Campaign and will be delivered by the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority, 9.30am-1pm at the St Benedict’s Centre, 52 Swan Street, West Malling, Kent ME19 6JX

Modern slavery is a growing concern in the UK, where there are at least 13,000 victims, although the National Crime Agency have suggested they believe that figure to be the tip of the iceberg. The Clewer Initiative has been set up by the Church of England to help dioceses to raise awareness of modern slavery and provide care and support to the victims. As part of that work the Diocese of Rochester and The Clewer Initiative will be running training on spotting the signs of modern slavery, with expert input from Lys Ford, a Partnerships Officer from the Gangmasters & Labour Abuse Authority. You will learn what kinds of modern slavery happen in the UK, how you can spot the signs, and who you should report your concerns to.

The training is free, but booking is essential as places are limited: early booking is recommended. To book please visit https://tickets.myiknowchurch.co.uk/gb/MzAxLTEwMA/t
