Hello & Welcome
This newsletter is designed to update you on the latest resources available via the anti-slavery partnership toolkit. Every month we highlight new documents, and also call for examples from our readers, which could help to fill an existing gap in knowledge. Sharing learning is essential to building evidence about effective action against modern slavery, and we are keen to develop the impact of both the toolkit, and anti-slavery partnership work more broadly. If you have any comments or suggestions, please contact us.
