Safe Car Wash initiative

Many hand car washes are legitimate businesses, but some of them are not. Police raids in hand car washes in towns and cities up and down the country have unearthed victims living in horrendous conditions. A new app helps members of the public to report on working conditions at hand car washes they use, and if they have concerns they will be asked to report them to the Modern Slavery Helpline. The data the app collects will be anonymised and shared with the National Crime Agency and the Gangmasters & Labour Abuse Authority, two law enforcement agencies who are leading on efforts to stamp out modern slavery across the UK.
