Modern Slavery Information

February 23, 2018Comments Off on Modern Slavery Information

Modern slavery is not something confined to history, it is still happening today, and it’s happening in Lancashire. Modern slavery could be happening right in front of you – whether that’s in nail bars, car washes, rural businesses, brothels, massage parlours, or a property in your neighbourhood. In Lancashire, partners are committed to rooting out those individuals who choose to exploit others.

Lancashire Constabulary, together with Lancashire Victim Services and the Royal College of Nursing have developed a new set of materials to give an identity to the work they are doing around modern slavery. The below material gives more information on modern slavery, the signs that could indicate that someone is a victim of slavery and what to do if you suspect someone is being exploited. To view the material, please click on the link below.

Modern slavery. Look closer. It could be right in front of you.’

The Local Safeguarding Adults Boards across Lancashire have been made aware of the increase in financial abuse, particularly of those who are vulnerable or those who are most at risk as they are unable to protect themselves.
We know financial abuse can have a devastating impact on victims, many of whom may not be aware they are being abused or know how to stop it.
Please could you spend just a few moments completing the following survey to help us not only understand the severity of this across Lancashire, but also identify the topics and areas we need to focus our support. You can access the survey by clicking on the below link, thank you:
For support and advice on Financial Abuse, please contact any of the numbers relating to your area in the below document:
