Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


In 2021, Nestac supported the modern slavery coordination unit in Programme Challenger to work with community members they worked with to raise awareness of domestic servitude. Through the work, it emerged that there was a significant crossover in these community members between experiences of domestic servitude and experiences of domestic abuse. As a result, this training was developed, in partnership with UCLAN, to raise awareness of this amongst agencies and organisations that worked with women about the issues identified.

This will be delivered as part of a national focus period on Modern Slavery at the start of November 2022.


£684 plus VAT be provided to University of Central Lancashire to deliver, in partnership with Nestac, two ‘It’s not culture, it’s crime: Understanding domestic servitude and gender based abuse’ training session to relevant partners across Greater Manchester.
