star this property answer text <p>Tackling modern slavery remains a top priority for this Government. We are aware of the Cooperative Group’s research. We are committed to collabo-rating with business, civil society organisations and the public sector to im-prove the evidence about the nature and scale of modern slavery. We con-tinue to take action to raise awareness to encourage reporting and to prevent this crime from happening in the first place.</p><p>For example;<br>• In March 2019, the Home Office worked closely with the Cabinet Office to launch a targeted pilot communications campaign focusing on labour exploitation in the West Midlands, West Yorkshire and Cambridgeshire. We are working with frontline professionals in the banking, healthcare and job centre sectors to im-prove how they spot the signs of modern slavery and encourage greater reporting.</p><p>• In January 2018, the National Crime Agency launched the Invisible People campaign, a touring photographic exhibition which portrayed the signs of slavery and exploitation to raise awareness across the country</p><p>• In 2018, we piloted a targeted, localised communications activity in Manchester, Barking and Dagenham focused on particular types of modern slavery. We worked with communities to co-create and pilot communications activity designed to help spot the signs of domestic servitude and encourage reporting</p><p>• Following the introduction of Anti-Slavery Day (18 October), in 2018 we launched a week long social media campaign to raise awareness of modern slavery across the UK.</p><p>• Border Force continue to work with port operators across the country to encourage display of anti-modern slavery messaging. This includes communications materials visible in all UK ports, such as Heathrow airport who collaborated with A21 to produce and display the ‘can you see me’ posters at its terminals. Border Force is also working with the NGO Unseen to ensure that information about the Modern Slavery Helpline is displayed at arrival points in the UK.</p><p>• Prosecutions for Modern Slavery continue to receive extensive media coverage which is increasing public awareness of these crimes. For example, the 2018 trial of British citizen Josephine Iyamu who was the first ever convicted cross border sex-trafficker under the Modern Slavery Act 2015, receiving an 18-year sentence. This highlights that any crimes relating to modern slavery, will not be tolerated.</p>

star this property answer text <p>While most public space CCTV systems are owned, monitored and managed by local authorities, the Government has supported local initiatives to inform the effective deployment of CCTV and is supportive of police and local authorities’ use of CCTV in helping to prevent and tackle serious violence. This is consistent with the focus of the Serious Violence Strategy, in using all available tools and techniques to respond to recent rises in serious violence. Since the launch of the Strategy in April 2018, we have, amongst a raft of activities, launched a £22m Early Intervention Youth Fund which is already supporting 29 projects in England and Wales, a national knife crime media campaign - #knife free; a new National County Lines Co-ordination Centre to tackle this violent and exploitative criminal activity; and the Offensive Weapons Bill to strengthen legislation on firearms, knives and corrosive substances.</p><p>On 2 October 2018 the Home Secretary announced further important measures including a consultation on new legal duty to support a multi-agency approach to preventing and tackling serious violence, a new long term £200 million Youth Endowment Fund, and an Independent Review of Drug Misuse</p><p>Most recently, on 13 March the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced that an additional £100 million, including £80 million of new funding from HM Treasury, for serious violence in 2019/20 to help the police’s immediate response to the rise in knife crime, and to support investment in Violence Reduction Units, bringing together a range of agencies including health, education, social services and others, to develop a multi-agency approach in preventing serious violence altogether. It is important that we recognise that greater law enforcement on its own will not reduce serious violence and that we must continue to focus on prevention and early intervention alongside this.</p>
