Sussex partners mark Anti-Slavery Day

Sussex partners working to combat modern slavery are reflecting on a year of progress.
In October 2020, Chief Constable Jo Shiner, Chief Executive of East and West Sussex County Councils, Becky Shaw, and Brighton and Hove City Council Chief Executive Geoff Raw marked Anti-Slavery Day with a UN Sustainable Goals pledge from their respective organisations to become a slavery free community in Sussex.
The pledge outlined how partners would work proactively with national and local government, law enforcement agencies, businesses, the voluntary and community sector, faith bodies and local communities.
On behalf of all Sussex partners, Detective Chief Inspector Kris Ottery of Sussex Police said: "Monday 18 October is Anti-Slavery Day this year, so we reflect on the achievements of the last year and our ongoing collective effort through the Sussex Anti-Slavery Network, which includes a wide range of partners across the county.
"Working with the University of Sussex we have successfully enhanced the work of the Network by introducing an online platform for its activities, included a series of informative webinars and podcasts to engage wider businesses and communities.
"The Network and other modern slavery partnerships across Sussex have adapted to the challenges of the pandemic including how exploiters may evolve to exploit resulting vulnerability, supporting a number of initiatives and intensification periods to respond to local concerns." Read full story here
