Stay Safe from Slavery was a prevention campaign that focused on raising awareness of modern slavery and strengthening safeguards amongst people who are particularly vulnerable to exploitation, i.e. the homeless, young people in care and care leavers, refugees and asylum seekers.
The campaign ran from August 2017 to February 2018 in the South West of England and was funded by Avon and Somerset Commissioner’s Community Action Fund, Awards for All England (Big Lottery), Rathbone Investments and Quartet Community Foundation.
Unchosen created and delivered free toolkits, awareness events and presentations to local authorities, the police and frontline agencies in these three sectors. The toolkits included information for frontline workers (spot-the-signs postcards, modern slavery handbook, short films and posters) and for their service users (stickers, contact cards, working rights multi-language leaflets, film packages, You Tube Chanel etc.). The events were organised in partnership with local agencies and included the screening of Stay Safe from Slavery film packages and a session of Q&A with a panel of experts.
Unchosen created 50 partnerships reaching a total number of 4,147 beneficiaries.
