Abolish
Slavery
Everywhere,
Forever.

 

 

  

 

Human trafficking is slavery.   

   

It’s the illegal trade of human beings. It’s the recruitment, control, and use of people for their bodies and for their labour. Through force, fraud, and coercion, people everywhere are being bought and sold against their will–right now in the 21st century.


But phrases likeslavery’ and ‘human trafficking can still feel ambiguous.
This is the reality: slavery is violence. It’s physical, verbal, and sexual abuse. It’s forced prostitution. It’s barbaric working conditions.


Slavery is more stoppable than ever, and that’s why we’re here, rallying around the world and doing the work together.

SIGNS OF TRAFFICKING

Look for clues that might identify a possible victim of modern-day slavery

 

•  They are accompanied by a controlling person, and do not speak on his or her own behalf, but instead defers to another person.   

•  They are transported to or from work, or lives and works at the same place.   

•  They are unable to keep his or her earnings: it is “withheld for safe-keeping.” In many cases, the person owes a debt they are working to pay off.   

• They have recently arrived in the country and do not speak the language of the country, or they only know sex-related or labour-related words.   

•  They may have signs of abuse, and a person may show signs of being denied food, water, sleep, and/or medical care. 

  

•  They are frightened to talk to outsiders and authorities, since they are closely monitored and controlled by their trafficker(s). They may be fearful, depressed, and overly submissive.

•  They may have bruises, scars, and other signs of physical abuse and torture. Victims of human trafficking are often beaten in areas that will not damage their appearance–such as their lower back.

 

•    They can be coerced into drug use by his or her traffickers, or turns to substance abuse to help cope with his or her enslavement.

 

•  They may be distrustful and suspicious. A victim of human trafficking may act as if they distrust any person who offers them assistance or attempts to converse with them.   

 

•  They may have a mobile phone despite a lack of other basic belongings.   

 

•  They may demonstrate affection towards abuser. It is possible they have developed Stockholm Syndrome, where kidnapped victims, over time, become sympathetic to their captors.

The UK is a source, transit, and destination country for men, women, and children subjected to sex trafficking & forced labour. Most victims are trafficked into the UK from Asia, Africa, and Eastern Europe. There are an estimated 13,000 people enslaved in the UK at present, however many are never identified or rescued.
Our A21 UK office works in three main areas to help tackle the issue of human trafficking across the UK. We PREVENT trafficking through our eduaction and training programmes, PROTECT victims through our SAFE project which safely repatriates victims home, & FUNDRAISE in order to support the work of A21 globally.

SAFE.


The SAFE Project provides flexible and tailored support to survivors of trafficking who wish to be repatriated back to their home country. The SAFE service supports the survivors throughout their journey home from pre-departure to post-arrival and there after. The SAFE project helps each individual according to their needs in order to give them the best support possible and reduce the risk of re-trafficking.

 


Events & Fundraisers.


Throughout the year we host key events and fundraisers in order to to raise awareness and funds. We offer the opportunity for freedom fighters to unite around one common cause and collectively make a difference.

 


Prevention & Awareness.


In the UK we are passionate about educating the next generation about human trafficking and inspiring them to make a difference. Therefore, we regularly go in to schools, colleges and universities to host assemblies and take lessons. Our educational material not only challenges students academically, but encourages them to step up and take action. If you would like us to come in to your school or unviersity, please click here.

 


Training.


Part of the work of A21 in the UK is to train professionals working in industries where people may come in to contact with victims of trafficking. We help educate and inform professionals on the issue of human trafficking alongside ways to prevent it, recognise it and report it. A lot of the training we do is in the Travel and Tourism industry which involves us training hotel, airport and airline staff. We also provide professional training for law enforcement, border force and medical staff. For more information on our training, please contact us at info.uk@a21.org.
