SEE-ME Ending Modern Slavery Programme commences!

“I was inspired by everything. I really loved it” Brigitta,Slovenia

Over the last few months, we've successfully hosted three SEE-ME events, welcoming a whole host of young people to raise greater awareness of trafficking and modern slavery and provide them with the tools to campaign for effective change.

The feedback from all the events has been really positive, with young people pledging their commitment to do more to help tackle this devastating issue. You can read more about past events from our blog.

Next year on the 6th February 2019, some of these campaigns will be presented in the Houses of Parliament. We’ll be providing updates of this event shortly, so be sure to keep an eye out!
