Last month, I took on an interesting role, as part of an campaign to raise awareness of domestic servitude taking place in UK households.
I must admit throughout my career there have been many roles I have enjoyed playing over the last few years, but with this one is perhaps one of the most interesting and will go on make a difference in tackling a major human rights issue.
I played the role of a social worker in the advert and offered support to victim. Check out the video below:
About the Modern Slavery Helpline:
Modern slavery is real. It is happening in our communities. An unseen crime, it hides in take-aways, hotels, car washes, nail bars and private homes.
The Home Office predicts that there may be as many as 13,000 victims in the UK alone. There is no typical victim of slavery. Victims can be men, women and children of all ages and cut across the population, but it is normally more prevalent amongst the most vulnerable, minority or socially excluded groups.
The Helpline team echo the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948, which states that: “No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.”
The campaign will shown across the UK and other countries to highlight the one of the major issues facing modern society and encourage young women to speak up and report crimes of this nature to the Modern Slavery Helpline on 08000 121 700 or visit their website: https://www.modernslaveryhelpline.org
