Did you watch C4’s #24hoursinpolicecustody last night?
 
It showed the devastating impact of modern day slavery, and how it's victims are suffering in our communities, often completely undetected.
 
Victims can be tricked into work with little or no money and awful living conditions. They often don’t see themselves as victims, and can be too frightened to leave.
 
Communities play a huge part in spotting and reporting modern day slavery sites. Although the signs aren’t always obvious, if you notice any of the below indicators from someone working in the community, please speak to us.
 
• do they look scruffy, malnourished or injured?
 
• are they acting anxious, afraid or unable to make eye contact?
 
• are they doing long hours, wearing unsuitable clothing or have the wrong equipment for the job?
 
• is where they are living overcrowded, poorly maintained or are the curtains always closed?
 
• do they behave like they’re being instructed by someone else, picked up/dropped off at the same time and place every day or don’t have access to money or identification?
 
You can report information via our website http://orlo.uk/mbpE6 , or completely anonymously by calling independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
