The Diocese of Liverpool was one of The Clewer Initiative’s initial pilot dioceses. Since its early involvement, the diocese has pursued a variety of opportunities to spread the word about modern slavery. Strategic meetings on modern slavery in Liverpool have been convened by the diocese with key partners to ensure the Merseyside area is doing all it can to root out modern slavery.
Along with the dioceses of Virginia in the United States and Kumasi in Ghana, Liverpool is engaged in a project called the Triangle of Hope, which aims to convert the triangle of despair, slavery, and exploitation into hope. Through the project, the dioceses are grappling with their historic involvement in the trans-Atlantic slave trade, and are committed to learning from the past to combat modern slavery and human trafficking. Triangle of Hope have established strong links with The Clewer Initiative.
