Since The Modern Slavery Act came into force in the UK last year, there has been an abundance of modern slavery resources appearing online. You only need to google 'modern slavery' and you will be swamped with information covering everything from what modern slavery is, how to spot the signs, and the measures you can take to prevent it.
It has become a hot topic and one many people are eager to learn more about, with large organisations across the country now under scrutiny to publish an annual modern slavery statement which details the steps they have taken in that year to identify and prevent modern slavery in its own business and its supply chain.
But, with the overwhelming amount of resources available to us, it can be difficult to know where to start.
In this blog we have put together a list of useful and relevant resources that we believe will help in your development of understanding modern slavery and the regulations that fall under The Modern Slavery Act 2015.
