The Problem

Modern slavery is real. It is happening in our communities. An unseen crime, it hides in take-aways, hotels, car washes, nail bars and private homes.

The Home Office predicts that there may be as many as 13,000 victims in the UK alone. There is no typical victim of slavery. Victims can be men, women and children of all ages and cut across the po pulation, but it is normally more prevalent amongst the most vulnerable, minority or socially excluded groups.

The Helpline team echo the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948, which states that:

“No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.”
