Submission to The House of Lords Select Committee on the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (by Samantha Radford MBACP and Steven Unthank)

The House of Lords Committee on the Modern Slavery Act 2015 called for written evidence for its inquiry into the impact and effectiveness of the 2015 Modern Slavery Act. It invited interested individuals and organisations to submit their views on these.

This submission includes the observations and input of individuals in situations related to ‘coercive control’ and its perceived overlapping into the area of ‘slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour’. It includes the lived experience of two former Jehovah’s Witnesses, one of whom resides in Australia, and the other in the UK.
