The Diocese of Truro lead for modern slavery is Transformation Cornwall, an ecumenical Faith Infrastructure Organisation.

Transformation Cornwall work with the diocese on many local projects, including Churches Together in Cornwall, the Cornwall Poverty Forum, Cornwall Faith Forum, and Caritas Plymouth, as well as statutory and community organisations throughout Cornwall.

Transformation Cornwall are one of the lead partners in the Modern Slavery in Cornwall Network alongside New Street Church, the Diocese of Truro, Falmouth & Penryn Churches Together, and Churches Together in Cornwall, in partnership with The Clewer Initiative. The Network raises awareness of modern slavery in Cornwall, and is a mutually supportive group of people offering a safe space to raise awareness, explore issues, share resources, highlight best practice, and plan action related to modern slavery in Cornwall.

Using the Hidden Voices methodology

The Clewer Initiative’s Hidden Voices training was delivered in 2021 to around 25 participants. The training was the foundation for the development of the Modern Slavery in Cornwall Network, which continues to meet to plan local responses to modern slavery.

Creating shareable resources

The Modern Slavery in Cornwall Network has produced a range of high-quality shareable resources, including:

  • ‘Hidden in Plain Sight’ poster
  • ‘Who to Contact’ poster
  • Modern Slavery in Cornwall branding suite, available here

Anti-Slavery Day Toolkit for Cornish Churches 2021, jointly created by Transformation Cornwall & Churches Together in Cornwall.
