UNHS is dedicated to the eradication of human trafficking and modern slavery in Scotland through our initiative, "See me, free me."

Through education, collaboration, and strategic partnership with concerned citizens in all levels of society, we are working to raise awareness for the causes, impacts, and signs of human trafficking and modern slavery in our communities.

 

Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery: Focus on Scotland

On 23 March 2018, UNHS will be hosting a conference and a series of workshops as a part of our 'See me, free me" efforts. The conference, entitled 'Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery in Scotland: Raising Awareness - Strengthening Collaboration – Breaking the Chains' is open to the public, and will focus on the impacts, causes, and prevention of human trafficking and modern slavery in Scotland. The conference and workshops will be attended and will feature experts, MSPs, NGOs and private sector advocates, among others. The conference and workshops will occur at Scottish Parliament with the sponsorship of MSP Christina McKelvie.

 

 

Resources on Human Trafficking

UNHS is committed to the eradication of human trafficking and modern slavery in Scotland through education. Through information in our introductory resources library and more information in the Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery resources library, we hope to create more awareness around the issue of human trafficking both in Scotland and worldwide.
