UK Anti-Slavery Day will see churches and faith communities seek to raise awareness of modern slavery and encourage people to take action.

This year, Anti-Slavery Day will be on Friday, 18th October 2019, and The Clewer Initiative has produced a range of helpful resources for individuals and churches.

The Clewer Initiative works with 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. As has been stated by The Clewer Initiative, ‘We believe that the tools to end modern slavery already exist within the local community and that the Church, which is present in all communities and at the heart of many, has a primary responsibility in leading these efforts.’

An area of current focus is an identified link between modern slavery and homelessness, and so homeless-focused resources, including prayer cards, are available to download here, and additional resources are available here
