This Home Office advert has reminded me of the reality that there are slaves in the UK (I don’t mean people working for minimum wage either but actual slaves). These are people held against their will, living in harsh conditions and treated badly. It might be happening behind a ‘respectable’ front door where you would least expect it. Forced into a life of domestic servitude or prostitution or hard labour. It’s wrong and needs to be stopped. Let’s keep our eyes and ears open.

The National UK Slavery Hotline is 0800 0121 700.

I first became aware of the issue by reading a book last April called Refuse to do Nothing.

Refuse to do nothing about modern-day slavery.
