Hidden in towns, cities and countryside across the United Kingdom, a distressing reality persists. Thousands of individuals – men, women and children alike – find themselves ensnared in the clutches of crime, sex trafficking, forced labor, coerced marriages and drug trade. The repercussions of this exploitation and maltreatment are profound, often leaving survivors with lasting trauma.
Although the Slavery Abolition Act of 1833 heralded the end of slavery in the UK and British colonies, freeing all enslaved individuals and signalling the end of the Transatlantic Slave Trade of 1807, the sombre truth remains: slavery, in various forms, still exists today. This sinister crime continues its existence, operating secretly beneath the surface of society.
For nearly two centuries, the legal shackles that once bound enslaved individuals have been removed. Yet, the chains of modern slavery persist, forging a hidden path through our society.
It is time for us to shine a light on this hidden crime, to unveil the shadows where exploitation thrives.
Together, we possess the power to bring about positive change for those who have endured the horrors of this unforgivable crime.
