GLAA & Crimestoppers Join forces

Independent charity Crimestoppers is working with The Gangmasters & Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) to raise awareness of the different strands of Modern Day Slavery and Labour Exploitation. 

Through this campaign it is anticipated that more information will be gathered by the authority, which will enable them to protect, prevent and reduce victims of this crime. This e-newsletter highlights the different strands of Modern Day Slavery and Labour Exploitation and the signs to be aware of, as well as the different reporting opportunities available to those with information.

This includes Crimestoppers which is a registered UK charity, providing an anonymous telephone line which offers a translation service in any language or an online form, all available twenty four hours a day, seven days a week – and both of which are 100% anonymous.
