Representatives of SWLA attend regular D & C Police briefings on modern slavery.
If you substitute the word ‘exploitation’ for ‘slavery’ it is easier to understand the scale and complexity of the subject.
Todays slavery is more likely to take the form of trafficked people, having paid for UK entry, with identity papers removed and being forced to work for little or no money. These people are often living in chronically overcrowded conditions with few if any amenities.
If you suspect a case of ‘Modern Slavery’ contact the police on 101 or the modern slavery help line on 0800 121 1700.
