Modern Slavery Campaign 2018


Continuing to raise awareness in 2019

We continue to raise awareness of this issue, and have widely distributed our poster in Crewe and Nantwich. This provides helpline numbers for people who find themselves trapped, and members of the public who want to report potential exploitation. If you want to have these printed professionally, we suggest the original designers and printers – Design Centre at the Neuro Muscular Centre at Winsford, it is a charity and are very reasonably priced. Here are the contact details:

There are two versions of the poster. The original one has the Modern Slavery Helpline number on it, but as there is a possibility that this will close on 30th November 2019, there is another version with the Salvation Army helpline number on, which will also be able to respond.

Modern Slavery Event in Nantwich Town Centre : Saturday 13 October

13 October 2018: Purple Teardrop Day

An Awareness Raising Event was held in Nantwich for Modern Day Anti-Slavery on Saturday 13th October by Nantwich & District Soroptimists. This is the 6th year the group has been holding an event. We were support by our Mayor David Marren. Paul Miller from Libre Solutions also attended. After talking with our President Mrs Nancy Lowe, they thanked us for our work. We held a coffee morning and had a tombola where all the prizes were wrapped in tissue paper so the prize was hidden, as Modern Slavery is a hidden problem.

The event took place as part of the wider Purple Teardrop Campaign aimed at raising awareness of Modern Day Slavery. The Purple Teardrop Campaign is a Soroptimist International initiative: please see http://www.purpleteardrop.org.uk for further information. The local campaign is supported by lawyers Hall Smith Whittingham who can help victims of modern slavery and human trafficking make claims for compensation. Legal aid is available for anyone on certain benefits or a low income. Phone 01270610300 or email eappleyard@hswsolicitors.co.uk for further information.
The poster we had designed for us is now being widely distributed throughout Crewe and Nantwich to raise awareness of Modern Slavery and publicise the help line numbers.
Paul Miller said, “Crewe is a hot bed for modern Slavery Abuse”.
