Modern day slavery and human trafficking

We take modern day slavery and human trafficking very seriously

We are one of the first local authorities to sign the charter against modern slavery.

We have already undertaken significant work to tackle modern slavery through the identification and referral of victims, victim support and working with police to disrupt organised criminal networks targeting vulnerable persons for the purposes of exploitation. We also have an ongoing training programme to assist staff and partners to identify the signs of modern slavery.

You can see our first annual modern day slavery and human trafficking report below:

Islington Council’s first annual report on tackling modern slavery

For further information and available training please read Modern day slavery on GOV.UK.
