What is modern slavery?

136,000 victims of slavery are estimated to be in the UK at this very moment.

Modern slavery is a hidden crime that reaches every community in the UK. It includes all forms of slavery, human trafficking and exploitation. Today it doesn’t look like people bound in chains.

It looks like domestic and construction workers.

It looks like nail bars and brothels.

It looks like under-priced car washes and unpaid fruit pickers.

Or even locked away in someone’s home.

It’s all around us, right in front of our eyes, if you know what to look for.
