Trafficking involves bringing people into this country to use them for the sex industry, or as domestic staff. Traffickers generally prey on vulnerable, poor families, conning women and girls to come to the UK for better paid jobs, only to find that they have been sold into the sex industry. The victims may find that they are stuck in a country where they can’t speak the language, are moved around frequently, have a bond to pay for their freedom, have passports stolen or removed, and don’t know who to trust. Trafficking happens worldwide and there are specific areas and routes traffickers take. The victims are forced into prostitution and are controlled so that little of the money they earn will ever be theirs. Trafficking is part of the global economy which creates millions of pounds a year.
