Modern slavery is often a hidden crime. It can involve a victim being trafficked and exploited for someone else’s gain without any respect for their human rights.
Here in North Wales we have a specialist modern slavery caseworker, who supports those victims who have been or are at risk of being exploited in any way.
There’s no time limit on this support. If you think you may have been exploited in the past or didn’t report it at the time, we’re here to listen, empower, and support you.
Our modern slavery caseworker understands the barriers that victims face, and that leaving the abuser might make things worse.
We can help you look at your options, empower you, and explain your rights as a victim.
We can help you navigate the criminal justice system as well as advocate on your behalf with the police, housing, your GP, and other third sector organisations.
We can support you if you’ve been a victim of:
- county lines
- human trafficking
- domestic servitude
- sexual exploitation
- forced labour
- criminal exploitation.
Our modern slavery caseworker can also support family members of those who have been exploited. This includes parents or guardians of young people who have been exploited in any way, or friends and family members who may be worried about a loved one.
You can report any suspicions or concerns you have to the police on 999 in an emergency or 101 for non-emergencies. Or to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
