Labour Exploitation in the Fenlands






Yes, the Fens are a hotspot for exploitation.

Victims of modern slavery are deceived with false promises of a better life. In reality, traffickers take control of their finances, do not pay the minimum wage, and can charge extortionate amounts for food and transport. Victims are often physically abused and have their identities are stolen.



Report any immediate incidents or concerns:

Crimestoppers: 0800 555 111 to report anonymously

Police:  999 in an emergency or 101 if non-urgent

Please remember that you don’t have to be sure of something being modern slavery or human trafficking in order to report it. If something seems suspicious it’s worth reporting it.
