Modern Slavery Statement
Modern slavery is a growing concern globally. The data tells us that the numbers of people suffering from this terrible crime are increasing by 20% every 4 years which has seen published figures of 50 million people that are now held in modern slavery conditions worldwide.
2022 saw the fallout of the Covid pandemic and political unrest meaning mass human migration which allows criminals to manipulate peoples needs and fears and the result is that this crime only becomes more prevalent but further underground.
