On Anti-Slavery Day 2018 we launched our new schools resources, created in collaboration with educational charity Just Enough Group.
We had some brilliant speakers joining us including Clare Gollop, the Programme Director for the National Police Chiefs Council’s Modern Slavery Portfolio, who spoke eloquently about her experiences as a police officer encountering modern slavery, and as a parent, wanting to teach her daughter how to protect herself.
We also heard from Sam Copus, a headteacher from St Mary’s School, whose choir have recorded their own version of The Freedom Song, to kick off our competition. She spoke about how their pupils have become engaged with the issue of modern slavery thanks to Just Enough’s work in their school.
We were joined by Rani Hong, a UN Ambassador and survivor of human trafficking, who gave us an incredible insight into how modern slavery can destroy the lives of children around the world.
And finally Nadhim Zahawi, MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Children and Families in the Department of Education. He shared how the government is currently expanding their protection of children who have been affected by modern slavery by rolling-out Independent Child Advocates for victims.
