Salvation Army debuts new film to help public spot signs of modern slavery

by Tola Mbakwe

The Christian charity said the film brings to life the everyday indicators of modern slavery and takes the viewer through common encounters people have.

It also shows where to go for information or to report suspicious activity, and how to link people to The Salvation Army's support.

The film builds on The Salvation Army's film last year, which featured Princess Eugenie of York calling on the public to ask businesses who make goods and services people use to review their supply chain for slave labour through social media using the hashtags, #askthquestion and #slavefree.

Princess Eugenie continued her encouragement to survivors and those working in the field earlier this year when she met with women who are recovering from exploitation as modern day slaves at a Salvation Army safe house in Yorkshire.

She said: "For me these amazing women are such an inspiration in the courage they show in overcoming what has happened to them and their desire to help others.

"It is important that everyone understands the reality of the horrendous experiences these women have had to face and that this kind of exploitation is happening every day in every community in our country."

The Salvation Army's Director of Anti Trafficking and Modern Slavery, Major Anne Read said: "We now need everyone in the UK to recognise the uncomfortable truth that modern slavery is taking place all around us.

"Everyone should make it their business to understand what to look for and who to tell and we'd urge anyone who wants to join our fight against modern slavery to watch the animation we've made, to help them know what the signs are to look out for, that anyone could come across in everyday life."
