What is Modern Slavery?
Modern slavery is where a person is brought to, or moved around the country by others who threaten, frighten or hurt them, and force them into work or other things they don’t want to do.
It is a term used to describe:
- Human trafficking, slavery, forced labour and domestic servitude
- Slavery practices such as debt bondage, sale or exploitation of children and forced marriage
Modern slavery is, by definition, the same as human trafficking, but this involves the act of transporting and movement of people.
