Examining a Public Health Approach to Modern Slavery

This year to mark Anti-Slavery Day, the Police and Crime Commissioner, the Violence Reduction Unit and the West Midlands Anti-Slavery Network have come together to host a collaborative conference which will examine the case for a public health approach to modern slavery seeking to identify with partners such as yourselves the key components that are considered important in enabling the anti-slavery sector to address modern slavery through a public health lens. This approach to modern slavery is emerging as a potential alternative to the criminal justice-based responses that have dominated attempts to address modern slavery to date. In holding this conference, we seek to examine what a public health approach to modern slavery means for us in the West Midlands.

There will be a number of key note speakers;

Dame Sara Thornton – Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner

Nicky Brennan – WM Victims Commissioner

Dr. Liz Such – the University of Sheffield

Clare Gollop – VRU Director

Followed by a series of panel discussions please see agenda for more details
