How we contribute to our missionary parish
Our parish Anti-Trafficking group is a response to Pope Francis’ call for Catholics and law enforcement officers around the world to join together in the fight against human trafficking and modern day slavery. Human trafficking happens here, “hidden in plain sight”, and we all have a duty to be aware. Moreover we are all complicit in the poverty and exploitation that fuels human trafficking as Pope Francis tells us in Laudato Si
The Anti-Trafficking group started as an OLOTV parish based initiative and was taken under the umbrella of Caritas Salford in 2015.
What we do
We work with East Lancashire Police in the spirit of the Santa Marta Group to inform the public about what to do when they see something that doesn’t look right and probably isn’t. We speak to groups of adults and school children and we publicise the issues via newspapers and social media. We have also become involved in victim care and support. We have attempted to promote what we do via our parish model.
