Modern slavery and homelessness
Throughout the year, hundreds of churches and community groups across the UK are running drop-in centres for homeless people. Over the winter, thousands more host night shelters. Traffickers, preying on the most vulnerable in our society, are targeting these same drop-in centres and night shelters, looking for workers to exploit.
We have created four videos to help train those working in church projects with homeless people. There are accompanying notes to guide volunteers through the material, and notes for project coordinators to equip them to respond.

We have worked with Just Enough Group to create lesson plans for five key stages, and collective worship material tailored to primary and secondary school audiences. You can find them all at www.modernslaverylessons.com While you’re there, take a look at our song competition and see if you can get your local school to enter!

We see you
We created this film to show people in the UK that modern slavery is happening near them. It might be in your nearest town or village, or maybe even in your church. The film features Archbishop Justin Welby, newsreader and presenter Julie Etchingham, and a woman called Miriam. Miriam was trafficked to the UK to work as a domestic servant. She worked long hours with no pay. Her traffickers told Miriam that they 'owned' her. They even took her to church. No one in her church noticed what Miriam was going through. We want to make sure that can't happen again. We invite you to use this film in your church, or with a local group, to encourage them to learn how to spot the signs of modern slavery in their area.
