Modern Slavery Training

The Global Slavery Index indicated in 2016 that there are as many as 136,000 victims of modern slavery in any one day in the UK.

At Hestia, we believe that one of the key ways to combat modern slavery is by recognising its prevalence and ensuring everyone knows their role in responding it, from spotting the signs to referring individuals to specialist support.

We have developed two new training packages for professionals, with the aim of helping them to learn more about modern slavery, identify victims and be aware of the support available.

‘Project TILI’ training is available for homelessness organisations and sex work charities, while our accredited training is open to all professionals. Take a look below.

Project TILI training

Hestia and homelessness charity Crisis have developed a free training package exploring the link between homelessness and modern slavery.

The training has been specifically designed for homelessness organisations and sex work charities, as part of Project TILI.

  • Understand the scale and nature of modern slavery and its relationship with homelessness

  • Identify when someone you are working with is experiencing or is at risk of modern slavery

  • Understand statutory support available to victims of modern slavery and how to access it
