New data released by the UK Home Office shows 2,808 people were identified as potential victims of modern slavery between 1st July and 30th September 2019. 

Of those identified, 60% were adults and labour exploitation was the most commonly reported form of exploitation. The Home Office states that this "is thought to be a result of increased awareness of modern slavery." However, we must continue the fight against slavery and human-trafficking. 

                            

Action by NGOs can have a hugely positive impact on the anti-slavery movement. Anti-slavery measures are embedded into all of Concordia's international volunteer programmes & projects. We keep in regular contact with our networks of international partners to ensure that our volunteers and the individuals they help are kept safe. Concordia is aware that some organisations can use volunteer programmes as a way to exploit participants and local communities. Read more about our stance on Voluntourism.

Although the Anti-Slavery Movement is incredibly important to us, we urge you to contact other organisations who's entire focus is on the eradication of slavery & human-trafficking:
