Modern slavery takes many forms, but some of the most common are sexual exploitation, servitude, human trafficking and forced and compulsory labour.
Manchester City Council is committed to improving its practices to prevent slavery and human trafficking and understands its responsibilities to residents, service users, employees and the local community. The council expects suppliers, partners and third parties to adhere to the same values and principles to combat slavery and human trafficking. As the council’s Arm’s Length Management Organisation, we are committed to upholding the council’s values and principles in this area.
