Anti-Slavery Day 2020
18th October Anti- Slavery Day its the opportunity to raise awareness of the need to eliminate all forms of slavery and encourage the government, local communities, and individuals to highlight some of the key issues to help tackle modern slavery and to address the problem.
Modern slavery is thought to be one of the most lucrative forms of organized crime. The number of people identified as victims of modern slavery has been rising year on year. In the UK, there are an estimated 136,000 men, women and children trapped in modern slavery.
People with disabilities are most likely at a higher risk of modern slavery as they can often be isolated within communities, not deemed eligible for support services or they may simply get overlooked due to not being viewed as a high-profile concern.
At CareTrade we celebrate equality and diversity. We believe that everyone deserves to have the same rights, to be safe and to have their voices heard. Modern slavery is a repulsive practice that takes advantage of vulnerable people creating a long lasting and damaging impact on the victim. Having our safeguarding procedures and policies put in place, it’s our duty and responsibility that those providing a health, social or education service have to carry out to protect someone from harm (this includes young adults and learners).
