Event description
TWO DATE COURSE: Hidden Voices - Church Action on Modern Slavery and Exploitation in Minehead

About this Event

Hidden Voices is an exciting ecumenical resource which aims to inform and support local communities in taking action on the challenging issue of Modern Slavery within their own communities.

It’s not just Car washes and Nail Bars. Evidence suggest that around a half to two thirds of homeless people have been or will be involved in modern slavery. We know that many women offering sexual services in Somerset have been trafficked. Labour exploitation is also rife. The police have made it clear that they cannot prosecute their way out of this problem and need community support.

We know that vulnerability in any form can lead to exploitation. Most churches in Somerset or their members are involved in some form of social action project or outreach. We have links into most communities. How can we protect the vulnerable among us?

Please join us on Saturday 2nd and Saturday 16th March 2019 10am – 3pm at YMCA Beach Hotel, The Avenue, Minehead TA24 5AP. Please bring your own lunch.

We will talk about modern slavery in Minehead and think about how all can help slavery proof themselves and also work with their communities to tackle the issue
