On Monday 7 November, The Very Revd Rogers Govender, Dean of Manchester, hosted ‘Modern Slavery: Not Gone. Not Forgotten. This was a multi-faith, multi-agency public event aiming to raise awareness of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking in Greater Manchester and what is being done to tackle it.

Guest speakers included Jim Battle (Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Greater Manchester), Ruth Dearnley (CEO, Stop the Traffik) and Cate Allison (Chief Executive, Manchester Action on Street Health).

Attendees took part in face-to-face cafe conversations with workers and agencies on the front line combating people trafficking and freeing victims.

This event was organised by the 'Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Multi-faith Forum' in collaboration with the Police and Crime Commissioner for Greater Manchester, Stop the Traffik, Greater Manchester Police Modern Slavery Unit and MASH.
