Hestia Training: Improving Awareness & Understanding of Modern Slavery

Modern slavery is a cold, calculating business model with no moral compass. Last year, Hestia supported the majority of victims in London – 624 through safe houses and our pan-London outreach service.

In 2016, 1 in 4 victims of modern slavery in England were supported by Hestia.

Modern slavery destroys the lives of its victims and is a shame to all of us in a modern society. Last year, Hestia supported the majority of London victims, and this year we have already seen an increase of 30%. The only way to combat this issue is with support by the public, – Patrick Ryan, CEO Hestia.
