Home Office launches modern slavery awareness campaign

31 Jul 2014, 10:24 am

The Home Office has launched a modern slavery awareness campaign to educate people about the different types of slavery, spotting the signs and how to report it. A television advert depicting some types of exploitation will highlight the existence of modern slavery in Britain, and encourage the public to report suspicions to a new helpline 0800 0121 700 and website.

The helpline and website have been set up by the Home Office and the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) to ensure that suspicions are reported, and that victims are referred on and receive the appropriate support. The website provides more information about modern slavery, and an online reporting and referral process.

To enable partners and frontline professionals to raise awareness of modern slavery and help victims, there is also a partner resource pack available on GOV.UK
