Concern about Modern Slavery in the UK
Mothers’ Union are proudly working in collaboration with the Clewer Initiative in order to end modern slavery by 2030. Both Mothers’ Union and the Clewer Initiative believe that the tools to end modern day slavery already exist within our local communities. We envision that the Church, which is present and at the heart of communities, has a primary responsibility in leading this effort. We can help with victim support and care. This involves working with the Church locally to identify resources already available to be utilised, developing partnerships with others and thus creating a wider network of advocates seeking to end modern slavery.
