Modern slavery is happening in hand car washes across the country. But with only anecdotal evidence, and a partial understanding of the scale of the problem, law enforcement need the public’s help to map this issue. The Safe Car Wash App has been created to mobilise communities and help gather information about hand car washes in the UK.

Download the Safe Car Wash app onto your phone and use it every time you go to a hand car wash. The app will take you through the most obvious indicators of modern slavery, asking you questions to determine whether those signs are present or not. If there is a high likelihood of modern slavery in the car wash, you will be prompted to call the Modern Slavery Helpline on 08000 121 700.

Remember, if someone is in immediate danger please call 999 and report it to the police.

Great concept and easy to use app

The app is so easy to use and great to know that I can play my part in helping the authorities to map and stop modern slavery in hand car washes. Thank you

Great initiative but...

I visited a car wash yesterday and felt uneasy. I downloaded the app today with the intention of trying to discover if my concerns were justified. I looked up news etc and was then unable to go back to reporting without closing the app down and re-opening. Like the other review I would have liked to go through the stages to see what it involved but could not do it as a ‘practice’ run or put in yesterday’s location where I had my car washed. I am happy to be involved with testing an app
