Issues Child Sexual Abuse / Exploitation Trafficking  
 
 

Trafficking



Trafficking is the movement of a person from one place to another
for the purposes of exploitation such as forced labour, slavery, sexual exploitation or for organs.  This includes: the recruitment, transportation, harbouring and receiving of a child or adult.  Methods often used to achieve this include:
  • Threat
  • Force 
  • Abduction
  • Fraud
  • Deception

There are more slaves now than in history with 29 million globally.  In the UK,  there are up to 10000 children and adults trafficked a year. Two thirds are girls and women and often forced into sex trade.  Victims of trafficking are often subjected to high levels of physical, sexual and psychological violence and therefore afraid to ask for help.  People do not have to have entered the country illegally to have been trafficked.  For example, British children and adults who are victims of sexual exploitation are often moved around with cities, regions and the UK.
