The human cost of modern slavery is enormous, affecting individuals (men, women and children) as well as communities. The Church of England’s Clewer Initiative is a means to help churches and communities detect modern slavery and provide support to its victims.

UK Anti-Slavery Day - Modern Slavery

The Together Network has the contacts and resources to develop practical responses at local level. Working with partners we develop and support projects, and share our experiences and models of best practice with communities which are looking for ways to tackle the issues.

As well as resources for churches, we have also created a unique poster designed to raise awareness of modern slavery amongst homeless people for use in winter night shelters, drop ins, and soup kitchens. Alongside it there is a foldable card, designed for people working with the homeless to help them understand the signs of modern slavery, and know what to do when they come across it. On the website there is also guidance for volunteers and project managers on steps they can take in their projects. We will be pushing these from now until the end of the winter night shelter season.
