Modern Slavery: Partnerships


Whilst Winchester Diocese is a newCI partner, there are many individuals within the diocese who have already been working at parish level, and through partner organisations to raise awareness of modern slavery in our midst contributing to training, victim support, prayer and social action initiatives for several years.

Partnership is invaluable and will continue to be part of the success in making Winchester Diocese and the county of Hampshire a hostile place for exploiters and perpetratorsof Modern Slavery and a place of support, compassion and rescue for victims of modern day slavery.

Safeguarding is at the heart of all aspects of modern day slavery awareness raising and social action. 

Some of our existing partners within the diocese are:
