Victims of Modern Slavery are Being Failed – Report Finds

Kevin Hyland, the UK’s Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner first annual report was presented to Parliament this Wednesday. You can read the report here 

The report claims that at any one time there is an estimated 10,000 to 13,000 victims of Modern Slavery here in Britain. Furthermore, present and future victims are being failed by both the British Police and Organisations. Mr Hyland stated that within the Police there is a  chronic weakness in crime reporting and a lack of intelligence reporting in place. With regards to UK Organisations, the report states that the current stance of many is to treat Modern Slavery as a simple tick box exercise.
