Latest Modern Slavery Statistics for Greater Manchester

The Modern Slavery Coordination Unit (MSCU), as a concept, was established in March 2015. Prior to this time the knowledge and extent of modern slavery within Greater Manchester was largely unknown. As a result, one of the focuses of the Unit is to identify what modern slavery looks like within Greater Manchester and capture some key statistics to help track how things change over time and develop our understanding of this complex and evolving issue. The aim of this section is to provide an insight to professionals and the public. Feel free to use the contact section if you have any questions or suggestions as to what is provided here.
