Sandstone Press partners with anti-slavery charity Unseen

Sandstone Press has announced a partnership with anti-slavery charity Unseen, as it prepares to publish Stolen Lives: Human Trafficking and Slavery in Britain Today by Louise Hulland.

The charity supports survivors of trafficking, and trains professionals and businesses to spot the signs of modern slavery, and how to report it. The press will donate £2 for every copy of Stolen Lives pre-ordered from its online shop to Unseen.

Sandstone’s m.d. Robert Davidson, said: "Sandstone Press is delighted to support the fine charity that is Unseen – the importance of the work it does has only become more apparent as we’ve worked with Louise Hulland on Stolen Lives."

The book, which explores trafficking and modern slavery in Britain, will be released on 3rd September 2020. The synopsis describes it as a "powerful and moving testimony from survivors [that] reveals the individual stories behind the headlines and charts one young woman’s terrifying and ultimately inspiring journey to freedom and independence. Finally, it shows us what we can do to make a difference."

Hulland said: "When I signed to Sandstone Press to write Stolen Lives, it was because the team understood how imperative it is to bring the issue of human trafficking and slavery to the world. I knew they were the publisher for me. When I found out they intended to donate £2 of every pre-order via their site to Unseen, I was even more delighted. Unseen do incredible work fighting slavery and this partnership perfectly exemplifies how working together can bring change."
