We will be sharing issues, experience, good practices and problems with a view to increasing transparency across supply chains, and by working jointly to stamp out an unacceptable practice.

Modern Slavery: The Facts
There are estimated 40.3 million people in modern slavery around the world, including 10 million children. Modern slavery can affect people of any age, gender or race. Many people think that slavery happens only overseas, in developing countries. In fact, no country is free from modern slavery, even Britain. The Government estimates that there are tens of thousands people in modern slavery in the UK.
