According to reports from the National Crime Agency and The Salvation Army, modern slavery continues to
increase. The Government’s Bill, when passed, will give new tools to law enforcement agencies, establish an
Anti-Slavery Commissioner and make provision for the protection of modern slavery victims. The government
identifies that legislation is only part of the wider solution.
Everybody has to be part of the solution. Think when you buy goods, who made them? If you see something that gives you cause for concern, report it to Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111. Think about supporting the Salvation Army Human Trafficking Victims Support fund. Frodsham Churches Together continues, through different activities, to raise awareness and forward funds to this fund. Activities have included, amongst others, presenting concerns to the local MP, Government Ministers, Senior Clergy, holding an open forum and an ecumenical service, working with Churches across Cheshire, and keeping in contact with other concerned groups.
This work will continue in the New Year as we develop our links with others across Cheshire within different organisations. If you are concerned about Human Trafficking and would like to have more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each year, Frodsham Methodist Church chooses a particular charity to support throughout the year, with donations from Sunday morning coffee, and some of the profits from the various social events we hold. We have decided that next year we will be supporting two organisations who work in the field of anti-trafficking - Salvation Army International and International Justice Mission.
