Slavery today and how Chesterfield can stop it will be top of the agenda at a conference.

Derby Diocese is hosting the Chesterfield Modern Slavery Conference at the St Barnabas Centre in Danesmoor from 10am to 2.30pm on Saturday, December 5, to raise awareness of the issue as a follow-up to the Church of England’s Derby Human Trafficking Summits last year.

Those summits, hosted by The Bishop of Derby, Dr Alistair Redfern, were the first of their kind in the UK, and now he is keen to extend them to the rest of Derbyshire.

“The feedback has been very positive as many groups and individuals had the opportunity to network and learn from each other,” said a Diocese spokesman.

Guest speakers will include members of charity Stop the Traffik and DI Harry Dick of Derbyshire police.

There will be refreshments and time for networking.
