Human trafficking is the illegal trade of human beings. It involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked worldwide – including right here in Scotland.
The majority of our scottish population are unaware of how big this issue is in our country. Phrases such as ‘slavery’ and ‘human trafficking’ seem far removed from our society. But the reality is, it’s all around us but we just need to be aware and know what to look for.
Let us show you and help us by sharing this information and raising awareness!
