How many victims of Modern Slavery are there in London?

The Head of the Metropolitan police modern slavery unit says the force expects as many as 1,600 people to be referred in 2017 in London alone, [orange]a leap of 60%[/orange] in suspected victims of modern slavery compared to 2016.

This is a worrying trend when you take into consideration it was a 260% increase in 2016 compared to 2015 (278 cases were referred to police in 2015).

The question eLamb would like to ask is:

Is this increase a result of better awareness, with an increase in people reporting victims of modern slavery? Or is human trafficking on the rise in London?

Modern slavery is something of a new buzz word … but with human trafficking we are where we were with domestic violence 25 years The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said:

“This is a crime that we can only solve by working together, modern slavery touches on the work of so many sectors across London and nationally.”

Please [orange]contact us[/orange], to hear how eLamb have helped companies such as Barratt Development and Arris International meet their obligations for raising awareness of [orange]modern slavery[/orange] within their organisations and supply chains.
