  • Tackling Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking – how to refer: national and local referrals

Week Two Atalie Gains

The Clewer Initiative is the title of national project of the Church of England to combat modern slavery.

Beginning initially in 2016 as a three year project, further funding will enable the project to continue until 2030.
The Clewer Initiative exists to raise awareness of modern slavery, to enhance victim identification and to provide victim care and support. The key premise of the initiative is that slavery must be eradicated in local communities, using tangible actions, and that the Church of England, having a presence in every community will be able to do aid in this endeavour.

Revd. Atalie Gaines, Vicar of King Charles the Martyr Church, Potters Bar (previous curate of St Andrews Bedford) is working alongside Revd Kelvin Woolmer of St Peter de Merton, Bedford to lead the diocesan approach to Modern Day Slavery in St Albans Diocese.
