Slough Safeguarding Adults

Exploitation of Adults/Modern Slavery

Modern slavery is a serious crime. It encompasses slavery, servitude, and forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking. Modern slavery victims can often face more than one type of abuse and slavery, for example if they are sold to another trafficker and then forced into another form of exploitation. A person is trafficked if they are brought to (or moved around) a country by others who threaten, frighten, hurt and force them to do work or other things they don’t want to do. Victims of this type of abuse can be exploited in their own home.  A summary of exploitation in the home (Cuckooing) can be found here

Specified public authorities have a duty to notify the Home Office about any potential victims of modern slavery they encounter in England and Wales.
