You might think that slavery is a thing of the past. But right now, almost 50 million people are trapped in slavery worldwide. It’s a problem that affects every country on earth – including the UK.
There are at least 136,000 victims of slavery in the UK at this very moment – and those are the ones we can only estimate.
Modern slavery is a hidden crime that reaches every community in the UK. Today it doesn’t look like people bound in chains.
