Churchgoers in Norwich are going to be given a grounding into how to spot the signs of modern slavery at a special summit.
People attending the event, which takes place at Witard Road Baptist Church on Saturday, January 27, will be trained by the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority and advised how to report their concerns.
The police will also be at the event, co-hosted by the Church of England backed 'Clewer Initiative' and the Eastern Baptist Association.
Kevin Hyland, the Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner, said 'By informing those who are in a position to identify and support victims of this brutal crime, I am confident that the church is living up to its potential in defending the oppressed and overcoming injustice.'
The event takes place between 10am and 2.15pm.
