Trafficking and Slavery 

Many victims of modern slavery are trafficked into the UK from overseas, although there is a large number of British nationals that are also are trafficked within and across the UK and held in conditions of slavery.

Victims often feel afraid to tell anybody about there situation because of deportation, the authorities and the abuser. The abuser can often blackmail the victim by telling them they will be arrested if they tell somebody or try to escape, using fears of the victims immigration status or criminal activity to control them.
