Modern slavery is a serious crime in which individuals are exploited for little or no pay. Exploitation includes, but is not limited to, sexual exploitation, forced or bonded labour, forced criminality, domestic servitude and the removal of organs.
The Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner demands a consistent response across the UK in order to ensure that victims are properly supported and those who offend are pursued and prosecuted accordingly. The Commissioner works with law enforcement agencies, charities, faith groups, businesses, international organisations and government agencies.
