New net­work tack­les traf­fick­ing

The Church of England - - NEWS -

The Church of Eng­land has launched a new net­work of cham­pi­ons to com­bat hu­man traf­fick­ing.

The first dioce­san train­ing and aware­ness day, at­tended by 30 dio­ce­ses as well as rep­re­sen­ta­tives of other faiths, was hosted at Lam­beth Palace so rep­re­sen­ta­tives could raise aware­ness for mod­ern day slav­ery in their com­mu­nity.

The Bishop of Derby, Dr Alas­tair Red­fern, said: “The key to tack­ling mod­ern day slav­ery is through build­ing part­ner­ships and cre­at­ing net­works.”
