Modern slavery exists all around us in plain sight.  Official figures state there are between 10,000 - 13,000 slaves currently in the UK but those leading the fight believe there are considerably more. In London, we revealed in our first Underground Lives report the number of victims increased by 30% in 2016-2017 yet this year we believe the figure will be almost double.

Join us for an exclusive lunch time talk by Vernon Coaker MP and DCI Phil Brewer as they discuss what the public can do to stop slavery and help keep London safe for victims. The event will be chaired by senior reporter at The Guardian Lexy Topping.
