Tackling modern slavery and trafficking is not something any organisation or agency can tackle in isolation. Law enforcement, governments, businesses, the media, the third sector and society at large have to be involved if we are to truly see an end to this hideous trade in our lifetime. The modern slavery helpline plays a vital role as it provides one central point to access, help advice and information. We need the public to be aware of the issues of modern slavery and the fact that this is an issue happening on the streets of the UK now. As a society in the 21st century we need to work together to end this scourge and ensure that everyone can live freely and without fear.
