Spot the Signs

Slavery happens everywhere, and anyone can become a victim. Here are the tell-tale signs to look out for:

  • A person with poor physical appearance.
  • Someone who seems vulnerable and isolated from the community.
  • A person with few personal effects.
  • Someone who has his or her movement restricted.
  • A group of people being moved around en masse at unusual hours.
  • Employers withholding passports and/or legal documents.
  • Evidence of physical/mental abuse.
  • Someone who is overly wary of the Police/authorities.
  • Young people with much older boyfriends/girlfriends- especially in conjunction with an unstable family background/excessive use of drugs alcohol/multiple mobile phones/unexplained gifts.

If you notice any of these indicators happening in your community, don’t hesitate to call one of the dedicated anti-slavery helplines.

Unchosen have a collection of Spot the Signs of Modern Slavery postcards and posters, to use at events or training.
These can purchased through our shop.
