Improving our Response to Modern Slavery & Exploitation: Supporting Chinese women

Three NGOs share their knowledge and experience to help professionals identify and support Chinese women who are vulnerable to, or victims of, modern slavery and exploitation.

Anyone can be exploited, or become a victim of modern slavery, no matter their age, gender or nationality. This report focuses specifically on Chinese women, due to the experiences of three NGOs, Caritas Bakhita House, Rahab and Tamar. It is hoped that the report will support wider understanding of the journey, exploitation and barriers often experienced by this demographic and improve the response by practitioners.

It explores:

  • the role of fraudulent travel agencies, which often trap people into debt they can’t pay off
  • complications with translation and the importance of professional interpreters
  • the barriers which stop someone asking for help.

The voices and stories of the women in the case studies remain at the heart of the report and continue to shape the work of the NGOs.
