The Co-operative Party is proud to be leading the way in campaigning against so-called Modern Slavery.
The Charter opposite is designed for local councils to commit to action on this issue. Already Labour councils in Islington, Waltham Forest, Stevenage, Lambeth and Oxford have signed.
Modern Slavery is one of the great evils of our time, and it's happening under our noses. In nail bars, car washes, farms, factories and restaurants, it is estimated that tens of thousands of people in the UK could be victims.
