The council is committed to raising awareness of modern slavery. Front-line staff and partners are being trained to recognise it and information are being shared with businesses and community groups so that public awareness of the problem is growing.
We have put in place arrangements to safeguard and support victims as they are identified and to make sure they are passed through to the appropriate national bodies.
The council has also produced a modern-day slavery policy. The policy recognises the importance of modern slavery and the obligations it has to identify and safeguard victims.
The policy can be viewed below:
