Think slavery is a thing of the past? If so, you should think again: around the world today, some 40 million people are trapped in slavery. And it’s not a remote issue: tens of thousands of slaves are thought to be living in the UK, while countless more are involved in some aspect of the products and services that we make use of in the UK.
In recognition of the scale of the issue, the government introduced the Modern Slavery Act in 2015. This places a wide range of legal duties on organisations to eliminate slavery from their operations and supply chains. With our Tackling Modern Slavery online training course, you can get everyone up to speed with their legal responsibilities and enable them to take a positive role in putting a stop to slavery.
