Use Your Eyes

By using your eyes and ears in your everyday life, you have a chance to stop human trafficking. Please use it. Awareness leads to action, and action leads to change.

Human trafficking happens in our society, right on our doorsteps, under our eyes. It’s up to us to be the eyes and ears of our communities and workplaces, to spot and report it.

If you come across some of the following indicators, please contact the police. 

If several of these signs present themselves, or if you have a niggling feeling that just won’t go away – call 999 in case of emergency, 101 about a general situation or Crimestoppers if you wish to remain anonymous.
