Modern Slavery is a growing issue in the UK, with thousands of victims hidden in plain sight. Some of these people are working in hand car washes, where police raids have uncovered victims living in appalling conditions.
CCJ and the Clewer Initiative believe that as communities, we have a responsibility to combat modern slavery. The Clewer Initiative have created the Safe Car Wash App, which helps members of the public to spot the signs of forced labour.
CCJ are working with the Clewer Initiative to publicise the app. We have produced a resource for Christian and Jewish communities to raise awareness of modern slavery. CCJ’s Safe Car Wash Resource contains sermon ideas, religious sources on slavery, activities for children and young people, and ways to involve the community in ending modern slavery.
