Modern Slavery

Modern Slavery is considered to be the most hidden form of exploitation in the UK. Recent research from the National Crime Agency (NCA) shows an estimated 10,000-13,000 victims of Human Trafficking currently live in the UK.  The next edition of Paramedic INSIGHT will feature a detailed discussion of this issue and the role paramedics can play in spotting and reporting their suspicions.  Paramedics are in an often unique position to see behind closed doors and, with this in mind, the College of Paramedics is lending its weight to a Government campaign in partnership with The Salvation Army and child protection charity AFRUCA, working to reduce the number of Domestic Slavery cases in the UK.  The campaign is encouraging professionals to be able to spot the signs of someone living in domestic slavery and report any suspicions to the Modern Slavery Helpline.  If you have been involved in a case where Modern Slavery has been suspected and would like to share your story with others to help raise awareness, please contact Gary Strong, National CPD Lead.  To report a suspicion, get help, advice or information call The Modern Slavery Helpline on 08000 121 700 or visit the website: www.modernslaveryhelpline.org
