Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking
Modern slavery is always a serious violation of a person’s human rights. Modern slavery is the exploitation or the severe and illegal exploitation of people for personal or commercial gain. It is sometimes known as contemporary slavery.
Modern slavery is an appalling crime. It is happening to men, women and children right now, often right in front of us. It has an impact across every part of society. Everyone needs to be aware of the risks that modern day slavery presents and everyone should know how to identify and report modern slavery whether it involves adults or children. Human trafficking is one of the most common forms of modern slavery and so in this module will be looked at more comprehensively than the other forms.
The module is designed to raise your awareness of modern slavery and human trafficking and to help you recognise your role in identifying and reporting concerns.
We outline the different forms of modern slavery and what the law says in relation to each. We also cover how to raise concerns and offer advice and guidance for dealing with both adult and child victims.
