Modern slavery is real. Nearly 4,000 victims are identified as potential victims of modern slavery in the UK each year; it is widely expected that this is just the tip of the iceberg. Human trafficking is a hidden crime so it is important to know the signs and report anything suspicious in your community.
To mark World Day Against Trafficking in Persons (Sunday 30th July) , anti-slavery charity Unseen has produced a new short film. It shows some of the ways people are trafficked in the UK and who to call for advice, support or to report a crime.
