Are you our new Black Country Modern Slavery Partnership Creator?
We’re delighted to be able to announce this truly amazing opportunity, which has been made possible with funding from The National Lottery Community Fund.
The Modern Slavery Partnership Creator is the key role for this groundbreaking project.
The post-holder will take the lead in identifying suitable partnership members, engaging with them and bringing them together to formulate an agreed, comprehensive and collaborative rolling action plan.
They will also liaise with potential funders to resource any additional activity which is identified as being required for a comprehensive response to Modern Slavery in the Black Country.
The Modern Slavery Project
The Modern Slavery Project is a short-term 6-month development project funded by the Community Fund.
Its aim is to develop, grow and formalise a partnership in the Black Country of statutory organisations (including the Police, criminal justice system and local authorities), businesses, voluntary sector, faith sector and community groups to tackle modern slavery. It is our intention that following this development phase, we will secure longer-term funding to enable the partnership plans to be implemented.
Modern Slavery comes in many forms: forced criminality, forced labour, sexual exploitation, domestic servitude, organ harvesting, child sexual exploitation, forced marriage, benefit fraud and, more recently, ‘county lines’. There are an estimated 136,000 victims of modern slavery in the UK, criminally trapped in industries such as construction, agriculture, hotels and restaurants, care homes, car washes, and nail bars.
You could be part of making a major dent in Modern Slavery in the Black Country.
