Hestia's Modern Slavery Training

Hestia provides accredited training on modern slavery to professionals across the UK, helping them to identify when someone they support might be a victim of modern slavery.

Why should professionals be trained on modern slavery?

The Global Slavery Index suggests that there are 136,000 victims of modern slavery in the UK.

At Hestia, we believe that providing modern slavery awareness training to a wide range of professionals is key to increasing victim identification and helping survivors to access statutory support.

Everyone has a role in spotting the signs of modern slavery and responding to it.
