Modern Day Slavery - Inspector Angela Burtonwood and Hilary Agg of Unseen

Wednesday 2nd December 2020

Modern slavery in the UK can take many forms, including forced sexual exploitation, domestic slavery or forced labour on farms, in construction, shops, bars, nail bars, car washes or manufacturing. Forced labour is the most common form of slavery in the UK, fueled by a drive for cheap products and services, with little regard for the people behind them. A growing form of slavery is trafficking into crime. In the UK, it’s fuelled by the trafficking of primarily British children, forced into ‘county lines’ drug trafficking and trafficking of Vietnamese nationals forced to work in cannabis production.

Tools for Self Reliance - Jo Shannon

Wednesday 9th December 2020

In 1980, Tools for Self Reliance was formally registered as a charity with the mandate of working with local organisations in developing countries to relieve poverty amongst the local population. It was envisioned as being a practical way to support tradespeople in some of the poorest parts of the world. Although raising awareness and campaigning are integral parts of what they do, they specialise in providing the vocational skills and business training rural tradespeople need to earn a livelihood, and equipping them with the tools they need to get started.
