Voluntary statement on slavery and human trafficking

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. 

The Credit Services Association is making a voluntary statement on modern slavery and human trafficking relating to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
