Anti-Slavery Day

Anti-Slavery Day was created by an act of Parliament in 2010. The day provides an opportunity to raise awareness of human trafficking and modern slavery and encourages Government, local authorities, companies and individuals to help address the problem.  Modern slavery is a very real issue in the world today – the Home Office estimates there could be as many as 13,000 people held in slavery in the UK.

To get involved with Anti-Slavery Day on your site you could consider the following:

  • Holding toolbox talks on the issue, providing advice on spotting the signs of modern slavery and encouraging workers to report any suspicions they may have.
  • Placing posters in public and discreet areas around site detailing who to contact if you suspect or are a victim of modern slavery.
  • Take part in fundraising activities for charities which support victims of modern slavery.

Anti-Slavery Day is held on 18th October.
