In a world where the shadows of human trafficking and modern slavery stretch far and wide, the road to recovery and justice can seem daunting. At Axis Solicitors, we support those who have endured the unimaginable. If you have been exploited or abused,  it is important to know that there are avenues available for you to make a claim to the Home Office, acknowledging you as a victim of these heinous acts. This could be your first step towards a brighter future. 

Recognising the Signs of Trafficking and Modern Slavery

Understanding the indicators of trafficking and modern slavery is crucial in recognising if you or someone you know may be a victim, as defined by the law. 

These indicators include, but are not limited to:

  • Being transported to another place for the purpose of work.
  • Misrepresentation of the type of work, leading to forced labor in undesirable conditions.
  • Non-payment for the labor provided.
  • Restrictions on movement and social interactions.
  • Excessively long working hours without adequate breaks.

These signs point to a life that no one should have to endure. Recognising them and taking action may be the first step towards liberation.

Victims of trafficking and modern slavery have rights and options in the UK, including the possibility of being granted leave to remain based on their experiences. A testament to the UK’s commitment to tackling the ongoing issue and protecting human rights while providing a safe haven for victims who have suffered.
