What is modern day slavery?

Modern slavery is happening in communities across Hull and East Yorkshire and includes forced labour, criminal exploitation and domestic servitude with victims often deceived or coerced into work and left feeling like they cannot leave.

The Home Office predicts that there may be as many as 13,000 victims in the UK alone and there is no typical victim of slavery.
