Am I Safe Now?

Help us end modern slavery

The Salvation Army is fighting to end modern slavery but we need everyone to know what to look out for and how to respond to spotting something suspicious.

With the aftermath of the pandemic, the cost of living crisis, and international conflicts, we need to act now. Traffickers will be finding new ways to exploit vulnerable people. Demand for cheap goods, cheap labour, and cheap sex have created the perfect storm for slavery and human trafficking. There are more people held in slave-like conditions than ever before and numbers keep growing.

What is modern slavery?

Modern slavery is the exploitation of other people, for personal or commercial gain. Centuries after slavery was officially abolished, thousands of people are still being exploited and kept in slave like conditions across the UK. They can be forced to work in the sex trade, used as domestic servants, exploited for labour or criminal activity, or have their organs removed to be sold. It’s often hidden, rarely obvious and could be happening where you live in your community. 
 
Right now, more than 40 million men, women and children are in modern slavery, more than ever before in history. People you see in streets and shops, farms and factories, building sites and bars could be living and working in appalling conditions, held against their will with violence and threats to them and their families.
