What is Shiva Foundation?

Shiva Foundation is a corporate foundation that aims to tackle and prevent human trafficking and modern slavery in the UK, by facilitating a more collaborative and systemic approach to making change.

What we do



We can harness the power and influence of the hotel industry to create an anti-trafficking movement that has the resources and capacity to really fight against human trafficking.

  • Working with Shiva Hotels to implement the Stop Slavery Blueprint across its properties
  • Coordinating the Stop Slavery Hotel Industry Network

Education and empowerment play a key role in driving social change. By supporting local communities and civil society organisations, we can build a comprehensive response to prevent human trafficking.

By providing platforms to bring together different perspectives and expertise, we equip stakeholders with the wider collective knowledge to be more effective and strategic in their work.

By bringing different sectors together to share experiences, best practices, ideas , we can catalyse the creation of solutions to tackle human trafficking and modern slavery more effectively.
