TCT appoints National Lottery funded Modern Slavery Partnerships Creator

Robin Brierley has recently joined the Transforming Communities Together (TCT) team, as the new Black Country Modern Slavery partnerships Creator.

This important new post in the battle against Modern Slavery has been created thanks to funding by The National Lottery Community Fund, who have funded TCT for a six month trial.

TCT’s CEO Rev Dr David Primrose explains “We’re delighted to welcome Robin to the team! Modern Slavery comes in many forms: forced criminality, forced labour, sexual exploitation, domestic servitude, organ harvesting, child sexual exploitation, forced marriage, benefit fraud and, more recently, ‘county lines’ and it’s vital that we build on the excellent work already happening across the Black Country to end this evil crime.”

Robin joins the team as a consultant, with an extensive experience of Modern Slavery work in the West Midlands, as the Chair of the West Midlands Anti-Slavery network and beyond.

He said “We recognise that partnership working is essential to combat slavery and human trafficking, at the same time ensuring the best possible outcome for victims, regionally and nationally. This is a great opportunity to ensure a coordinated response in the Black Country, complimenting and adding value to the work of all our partners.”
