Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery

Alert message sent 28/01/2019 20:57:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

What is Human Trafficking?
Human Trafficking is the illegal movement of people through force, fraud or deception with the intention of exploiting them, typically for the purposes of forced labour.

People Smuggling: People trafficking and people smuggling are often confused. People smuggling is the illegal movement of people across international border for a fee and upon arrival in the country of destination the smuggled person is free.

Human trafficking is fundamentally different as the trafficker is facilitating the movement of that person for the purpose of exploitation. There is no need for an international border to be crossed in cases of trafficking, it occurs also nationally, even within one community.

What is Modern Slavery?
Modern Slavery includes; human trafficking, forced labour and debt bondage, sexual exploitation, criminal exploitation, domestic servitude, descent-based slavery, child labour, slavery in supply chains, and forced and early marriage.

Report modern slavery if you suspect that someone is a victim or is being exploited for commercial gain:
