Unseen, the Leading UK Anti-Slavery Charity

About this event

This event has now expired

Today's podcast covers ground related to law enforcement, survivor's welfare, training, the world wide nature of the crimes, predictions and the under application of legislation.

Andrew Wallis OBE founded Unseen, the Leading UK Anti-Slavery Charity. It's an organization that fights tirelessly against all forms of slavery. Unseen provides safe housing and essential support services to survivors of trafficking, and they also operate the UK's Modern Slavery and Exploitation Helpline. Unseen works alongside businesses and other entities to eliminate slavery.

Andrew is an advisor to the Competent Boards Program and Tech Against Trafficking. He co-chairs the UK Home Office's Modern Slavery Engagement Forum and chaired the landmark report on modern slavery in the UK called "It Happens Here." His expertise was crucial in developing the UK Modern Slavery Act of 2015, for which he received an OBE. Andrew has faced many challenges over the years, from building flat-pack furniture for Unseen's first safe house to advising multinational corporations on supply chain slavery. He also collaborates with governments on policies and legislation to combat modern-day slavery.

Andrew frequently appears in the media to discuss modern slavery, human rights, and how they intersect in society and business. People who know him describe him as "the loveliest disruptor you could ever meet." His contribution to the fight against slavery is invaluable.
