Modern slavery

Modern slavery can take many forms including people trafficking and forced labour, sexual exploitation, criminal exploitation.
It’s estimated there are 40.3 million people in modern slavery in the world. The Home Office estimates there are 13,000 potential victims in the UK. Sandwell organisations are working closely together to tackle this crime.
