Representatives from Anglican and Methodist churches, the Roman Catholic Church and the Salvation Army met to discuss issues surrounding human trafficking and slavery at an event at Church House on 7 June.
Susan Taylor, speaking on behalf of Cheshire Antislavery Network, gave an overview of the crime of human trafficking and explained how we can learn to spot the signs of Modern Slavery. 

Although slavery was officially abolished in the UK over 200 years ago, it remains a growing crime, with victims enslaved in domestic servitude, forced labour, cannabis cultivation or sexual exploitation.

Christians need to be ready to speak out against the evil of human trafficking and raise awareness of Modern Day Slavery, whilst supporting specialist organisations working to tackle this crime.
