This video uses the GLAA's experiences with real human traffickers to illustrate the methods they use and the lengths they will go to to exploit workers for profit. Though the voice used is that of an actor, the content is drawn from very real examples of cases.

Modern Slavery is the recruitment, movement, harbouring or receiving of children, women and men through the use of force, coercion, deception, and abuse of vulnerability or other means for the purpose of exploitation. Modern Slavery can happen in any community, and whilst vulnerable people are often targeted, anyone can become a victim.

Individuals may be trafficked into, out of or within the UK, and they may be trafficked for a number of reasons including sexual exploitation, forced labour, domestic servitude and organ harvesting. 

Often, people may not see themselves as victims.

Car washes, nail bars, takeaways, farms and brothels are all potential places where modern slavery can happen. Taxi companies, hotels or petrol stations may also be used to facilitate these crimes and landlords may also inadvertently or knowingly house victims.

The Modern Slavery Act 2015 was introduced to fight modern slavery and protect vulnerable people. 

Modern Slavery can take many different forms. Expand the below sections to find out more about each type of exploitation and the signs to look out for:
