Modern Slavery in Sussex: How should we support victims of modern slavery – and what are the implications if we don’t?
Earlier webinars talked about the scale of modern slavery across the world and within the UK. Behind every number is a human being; someone who has been exploited through the use of coercion.
Psychological and physical trauma are experienced by those who have survived and often they are left broken unable to build trust with others, feeling hopeless and alone in the world.
This webinar highlights the value of supporting victims of modern slavery, the different ways this can be delivered and discusses the impact of what happens when isn’t available.

This project is funded by the University of Sussex and the Economic and Social Research Council to help translate academic knowledge into action. The activity is facilitated by always possible, a unique consultancy looking at 21st century problem-solving through connected conversation.
The Anti-modern Slavery project brings together a host of activities, research and content and as part of this we have set up a community content hub via a peer networking platform called The Possibility Club.
Sign up to the Anti-Modern Slavery ‘circle’ to join a community of people and organisations interested in discussing, debating and disrupting. It’s a place to share ideas, build collaboration and move towards changing the conversation.
Bringing together cutting-edge research, business innovation, grassroots practice in the community and individual lived experience – we’re pooling our knowledge to see what the future might look like.
If you are open to sharing ideas and building collaborations about modern slavery and ways to raise awareness of, and ultimately combat, the problem – then we’d love you to join a new community of thought.
