The term ‘Modern Slavery’ captures a whole range and types of exploitation, many of which can occur together. These include but are not limited to:
- Sexual Exploitation
- Domestic servitude
- Forced labour
- Criminal exploitation
- Other forms of exploitation include organ removal, forced begging, forced benefit fraud forced marriage and illegal adoption
These risks will be present in a range of service areas providing support to the most at risk children’s and adults.
Modern Day Slavery is a cross cutting issue that extends to both criminal justice and safeguarding and social care services, as well as procurement. A Hampshire Modern Slavery Partnership is driving this agenda across the Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton Safeguarding Partnerships and Hampshire Constabulary.
