This is the first of three short films we're releasing this Christmas, showing why we do what we do. This film, RESCUE, introduces you to one of our investigators and takes you behind the scenes on the rescue of a mother and her baby son as she flees the house where she was forced to work.

On this day in 1949, the UN’s anti-trafficking convention was adopted. So it’s a great day to back the ILO’s 50 for Freedom campaign to pressure more countries to sign the treaty requiring new measures to tackle all forms of modern slavery. Only 10 countries have signed so far…can we get to 50 by 2018?
So great to see Nikki Davis, Executive Director of Young Living Foundation, at our US offices yesterday. We're privileged to have the Foundation and its amazing people by our sides in the fight to #EndSlavery

21 million people trapped in modern slavery, but together we can act – one life at a time. Like we did for Serey. “You lose yourself in those hidden rooms. No longer a name, simply an exchange. A hopelessly soiled cloth, flesh for sale. But then the rescuers came.”
On #GivingTuesday, let’s give the same hope to others among the 21 million #21for21
Thrilled to have so many amazing abolitionists and influential people at our House of Commons Freedom Dinner earlier this month. A fantastic night - our thanks to Fiona Bruce MP for hosting the evening, she's such a strong ally in our fight to bring an end to modern slavery!
21 million people trapped in modern slavery, but together we can do something about it. Like we did for Martin. He was terrified of his trafficker, but escape meant a destitute life on unfriendly streets - until we found him.
On #GivingTuesday, let’s give the same hope to others like Martin among the 21 million #21for21
The ILO Forced Labour Protocol has just come into force, a landmark achievement. But only nine countries have ratified (including UK and Norway). Far more must step up! "The more that ratify and ensure it is implemented, the closer we’ll be to eliminating slavery once and for all."
