Over 9 years of fighting to reduce labour exploitation
Undertaking research to build the world’s most comprehensive modern slavery evidence base. We tackle big research questions such as: how many people are living in modern slavery, what makes people vulnerable, what are governments doing to respond, and what works to eradicate modern slavery.
Using our evidence base to inform and influence government, business, faith leaders and civil society. We advocate for change for those without a voice.
Collaborating with governments, businesses, international organisations, and communities to tackle modern slavery. We invest in frontline organisations that have proven impact.
No country in the world is exempt from modern slavery. Regardless of size, population or wealth, this insidious crime permeates national borders and global supply chains.
We proudly and courageously call for change in places that others don’t consider, are unable or unwilling to go. We pioneer new approaches, invest in important projects and carry out research that reinforces the need for change and explains to others how they can make the greatest impact.
“Modern slavery is not something that happens ‘over there’ that we don’t have to think about. If we care about the people who make our products we can make a difference.”
