Together we can stop Modern Slavery

We can all play a part in stopping modern slavery, however large or small. How can you help? Start by looking out for signs of Modern Slavery and reporting it.


Movement + Control + Exploitation
= Human Trafficking


Spot the signs

  • Works long hours in harsh or unsafe conditions
  • Is living in dirty, cramped or overcrowded accommodation
  • Is living and working at the same address
  • Is not able to move around freely and appears to be under someone else’s control
  • Is rarely allowed to travel on their own
  • demonstrates signs of physical or psychological abuse, such as lacking self-esteem, seeming anxious, bruising or untreated medical conditions
  • Appears frightened, withdrawn or shows signs of physical or psychological abuse e.g. looking malnourished or unkempt
  • Is reluctant to seek help and avoids eye contact with strangers or the authorities
  • Is fearful of the police, doesn’t know who to trust or where to get help.
  • Has no control of their identification documents, such as their passport

In addition to these generic signs provided by one of our partners the Medaille Trust, there are also specific signs relating to specific slavery types – find out more by visiting Stop the Traffik.
