LEICESTER – The new Leicester Garment and Textile Workers Trust launches today, with a mission statement of creating positive and lasting change across the city’s manufacturing sector.

From the outset, the trust has commissioned the University of Nottingham’s Rights Lab – which boasts the largest group of modern slavery scholars in the world – to undertake research into the current state of play, as to provide a “solid foundation of evidence”.

Dr Alison Gardner, associate director of the Rights Lab, said: “We’re really excited to inform the work of the Leicester Garment and Textile Workers Trust and hope that many workers, businesses, and community partners will take part in this important research, to help improve the wellbeing of workers and their families, and build a city that is sustainably resilient against labour exploitation.”
