Catch-up: Modern Slavery in Sussex

Implications of the Nationality and Borders Act on modern slavery support in Sussex.


We continued the Anti-Modern Slavery: Changing the Conversation strand with a further series of four webinars aimed at professionals, communities leaders, academics, and anyone interested in this important topic.

This was the fourth and final event in the latest series. Scroll down for a complete playlist of all the Anti-Modern Slavery webinars so far.

At a time when organisations and society in general are growing in confidence about what modern slavery is – and how to spot it and report it – questions have been asked as to how the Nationality and Borders Act will impact on the work that has already been started. This panel discussion reflected on the potential impact this Bill will have.
