Combating mate crime
Mate crime is hate crime which is done by someone you know. Mate crime is a criminal offence and it’s where someone is usually targeted because they are disabled or different.
Mate crime can also be committed by someone who should be looking after you, such as a healthcare worker or home help assistant.
Combating modern slavery
Modern slavery takes many forms including:
- child trafficking - being moved around the UK and forced into a life of crime and abuse
- criminal exploitation - being forced into committing illegal acts such as pick-pocketing or growing cannabis
- forced labour - having to work long hours for little or no pay
Our Modern Slavery Statement commits our intention to combat modern slavery within Solihull.
