How is Sussex tackling the issue?
Modern slavery is a hidden and growing crime. Every business/organisation has a responsibility to ensure that it does not facilitate modern slavery in its organisation of supply chains. According to research, there are still people that don’t know what modern slavery is.
Ardea International has been working alongside other organisations and business to try and change this and raise awareness of the problem. Our networking event in Brighton brings together business, civil society, academics and the public sector to discuss challenges around this problem.
Following the success of our previous events, we are hosting our next event at Hotel du Vin, Brighton. Come and join us for an evening of awareness raising and discussion: https://www.ardeainternational.com/event/ardea-international-modern-slavery-business-and-supply-chain-networking-event/
We have a mix of speakers including the ethics and compliance champion from Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club, Eleonor Spencer from the Sophie Hayes foundation, DC Sophie McGarel, Sussex Police and Isobel Archer from Ardea discussing collaborative models to address modern slavery risk.
We are also launching our new ‘Ethics and Compliance Support Package’ at the event.
Please note that spaces are limited at this event so we advise that you book your ticket early to avoid disappointment.
