Shan was born in Glasgow to Sri Lankan Tamil parents who immigrated to Scotland in the 1970’s. He is a graduate of Strathclyde University who has worked within the employment sector for nearly 18 years. He founded the movement Scotland Against Modern Slavery in 2017 with it’s aim to raise awareness of Modern Slavery and in particular Labour Exploitation within the business community of Scotland. He works with the Human Trafficking Team within the Scottish Government on Action Area 3 of the Human Trafficking and Exploitation Strategy.

Part of this campaign he has spearheaded is based around spotting the signs of labour exploitation within the workplace and emphasising that every member of the public has a duty to be aware of this.

The risk of exploitation of those who are supported by the RSS are clear and Shan is keen to support in this area and with his links to the business community in Scotland to gather support for the RSS from corporates.
