With 40.3 million people in the world being exploited for labour, sex and/or domestic servitude, we aim to end this horrendous crime once and for all. Modern slavery is something happening to the people who live in our communities and it’s happening right on our doorsteps. We believe that by working together, understanding the problem, and looking at root causes and addressing them, we can make a difference. We use our expertise to help those we work with in whatever way we can.
We use a survivor-centred approach, seeking to keep the safety, wellbeing and interests of potential victims and survivors at the core of our programmes.
Recognising the political, economic, social and legal structures which contribute to the persistence of modern slavery, we seek to use a rights-based approach by co-designing impact-driven programmes that encourage positive transformation of power relations by changing harmful structures.
We are committed to ensuring that the businesses we work with and broader work we do takes on a specific gender-sensitive approach which recognises that modern slavery manifests in different ways for women and men, with underlying root causes.
We believe in the power of our role in convening, catalysing and facilitating change amongst a wide group of organisations.
We value learning, through research and implementing good measurement and evaluation practices
in order to adapt our work in light of these experiences and new evidence.
