Modern slavery and child labour

A child’s start in life has lasting implications for their health, wellbeing, and access to opportunities.

Poverty remains the greatest obstacle for millions of children and young people across the globe. Limited access to basic standards of living, healthcare and state support is having a significant impact on the ability of children to survive and thrive.

Our research at The University of Manchester aims to tackle a broad range of poverty challenges that face children and their families in the UK and around the world. We work directly with NGOs and policymakers to enable children to access the basic services that they need.
