News and events Stories Online training to raise awareness of Modern Slavery Hope for Justice is a charity built on the principles of the Christian Faith. Its mission is to bring an end to modern slavery by preventing exploitation, rescuing victims, restoring lives, and reforming society. The charity is offering free Modern Slavery online training for staff and volunteers from charities, churches and community groups who work within the area of Greater Lincolnshire. This will cover an introduction to the issue, focussing on what Modern Slavery is, how to recognise it and how to report cases safely. Churches and community groups are part of local networks and are seen as trusted people and places. Being able to spot the signs and know how to report is crucial to halting this injustice which often goes unseen and unchallenged in our midst – your local context is the key. There are three sessions available throughout June, July and August and spaces are allocated on a first come, first served basis. For more information, and to register, please see the Eventbrite links below. June - Wednesday 16th at 9.30am to 12 noon. July - Thursday 15th 13.30 to 15.00 August - Wednesday 11th at 9.30 to 12 noon. Other resources The Clewer Initiative is enabling Church of England dioceses and wider Church networks to develop strategies to detect modern slavery in their communities and help provide victim support and care. It provides a number of resources for churches, church halls and schools.
