Modern Slavery

Modern slavery is the illegal exploitation of a person or people for personal or commercial gain. It is often closer than we think. Often people are tricked or threatened into work, often for little or no pay, and feel unable to leave through fear or intimidation. They may not even recognise themselves as a victim of modern slavery.


It covers a wide range exploitation including sexual exploitation, domestic servitude, forced labour, debt bondage, criminal exploitation, organ harvesting and forced marriage.


Human trafficking is the movement of people of people by means of force, fraud, coercion or deception with the aim of exploiting them. Victims of trafficking are traded for financial gain, either within a country or internationally.
