U.K. nationals in the top 3 most exploited nationalities.
This may surprise you.
It is important for us in N.I to understand that #modernslavery & #humantrafficking happens here and it doesn’t always happen to just foreign nationals but to U.K nationals.
If we are to be effective in our fight against modern slavery & human trafficking we need to be aware of what it looks like in all its forms and what are the push factors that cause someone to be vulnerable to exploitation.
The NCA has published the NRM statistics for July-September 2018. 1,750 potential victims were referred to the NRM during this period (a 6% increase on the previous quarter). Albania, UK and Vietnam remain the most common nationalities and labour exploitation is again the most common exploitation type recorded for both adults and children.
