Towards a Modern Slavery Act


CWS is supporting a joint initiative calling for our government to pass a Modern Slavery Act.

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment is asking for submissions regarding modern slavery, worker exploitation, forced labour and people trafficking. An estimated 40 million people are affected by slavery and exploitation. Our Indian partners are actively involved in education and action on modern forms of slavery, child labour and trafficking. You can read more and find out how to make a submission on our website. Submissions are due by June 7.
