While slavery is supposed to have stopped nearly 200 years ago, tens of thousands of people are in modern slavery in the UK today.
Friday 18th October marks Anti-Slavery Day across the UK and the York and North Yorkshire Modern Day Slavery Partnership have launched new resources to raise awareness of modern day slavery and human trafficking.
Cases of modern day slavery and human trafficking occur throughout Yorkshire so The Modern Slavery Partnership want people to know what to look out for and how to stop it. You can download the leaflet here.
There are also podcasts available on the subject, one of which is by Community First Yorkshire trustee Professor Gary Craig.

Podcast 2 – Professor Gary Craig, Vice Chair of the Modern Slavery Partnership for York and North Yorkshire
