In line with our vision to help contribute to the preservation of the environment and to foster a just society we use our legal and commercial skills to help develop projects tackling modern slavery.
Current projects that we are involved in are:
- Developing an anti human trafficking Hub at the Towers Convent School
- Working with St Peters Church to raise awareness with the church community
The Towers anti slavery hub
The Towers Convent School is based in Upper Beading, near Steyning, West Sussex. It is a school based on Gospel values that strives to develop the potential of each one of its pupils with a view to teaching them to value the gifts from those around them.
On 18th of April 2017 the Towers Convent School launched an anti slavery Hub at the school. Our director, Colleen, spearheads the project which aims to raise awareness of modern slavery amongst the pupils and in the community and to encourage individuals to become involved in projects to help create change. The Hub will serve as a platform to encourage people and communities and businesses to share and access resources on slavery issues, access volunteers, raise money to encourage girls to visit the sister convents in Brazil and Tanzania with a view to help building communities.
GET INVOLVED – we will be hosting another awareness raising event in the autumn. To find out how you can contribute to the fight against modern day slavery read our 5 things you can do summary created by the Tower’s girls.
The Hub will be supported by Made Open. At Made Open we are committed to making positive changes in society; in particular by leveraging existing strengths within communities and embedding innovation into the core ‘business’ offering of our client partners.
