Operation Aidant - Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking is happening every day !
Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking is
happening every day across the UK, affecting
people of all ages, genders, and nationalities.
Some estimates suggest that as many as
136,000 people in the UK are trapped in modern
slavery. 10,613 potential victims of modern
slavery were submitted to the UK’s National
Referral Mechanism (NRM) in 2020, 48% were
adults, 47% children and 34% UK nationals.
Devon and Cornwall Police have a campaign to raise awareness running this September.
