Stronger Together - Tackling Modern Slavery in UK Businesses

Course Outline


The UK Home Office estimates that there may be up to 13,000 people held in slavery in the UK. The course will provide employees in UK businesses with the awareness and tools necessary to help identify and tackle this hidden exploitation.

The course sets the learning points in the context of increasing efforts to address labour exploitation, in particular the Modern Slavery Act 2015. The training focuses on the crime of 'forced or compulsory labour' as defined in this Act, and was produced in conjunction with the multi-stakeholder anti-slavery initiative Stronger Together.


The course explains:

  • What modern slavery is
  • The industries it most commonly affects
  • How learners can spot the signs of hidden labour exploitation
  • What learners can do personally to protect vulnerable individuals from exploitation

It gives clear guidance on what learners can do to help, by describing signs to look out for and explaining what they should do if they believe someone may be being exploited. The message of practical guidance is supported by video and animation to emphasise the importance of helping to stop labour exploitation.
