Human trafficking and modern slavery is abuse.

It is illegal, but it continues to flourish in every large town and city in the UK (NCA, 2017). There is no ‘typical’ victim of modern slavery. Victims can be men, women, and children of all ages, ethnicities, nationalities and backgrounds

Human trafficking is the illegal movement of people through force, fraud or deception, with the intention of exploiting them through forced labour, sexual exploitation or criminal activity.

What we do

– We review our learners’ welfare via regular reviews
– We provide advice and information on the ‘Stay Safe’ section of our website including details of national organisations that can help

What you will do

– I will talk to someone if I feel that I am a victim of exploitation
– I will talk to someone if I think someone else is a victim of exploitation
– I know that I can report my concerns to the Safeguarding and Welfare Team at SWCA
– I will avoid putting myself in risky or dangerous situations, particularly with people I do not know
– I will use the internet/social media safely and not post anything that could be used to exploit me
