Faith-based organisations (along with NGOs and civil society), play a significant role in the response to and prevention of modern slavery, both in the UK and internationally.

Due to the hidden nature of money laundering, it is very hard to produce a robust measurement. Yet an agreed estimate of the scale of money laundering can advance our understanding of the threat and facilitate the assessment of how effective anti-money laundering measures are.
