Help tell a different story for those vulnerable to being trafficked by donating today

Please support our appeal to prevent women and girls being trafficked this summer

Women and girls are being coerced into cheap labour in nail salons, forced to work long hours with little or no breaks. STOP THE TRAFFIK is working to help those vulnerable to being trafficked know how to spot the signs, make informed decisions and change the course of their future for the better. Donate today to help STOP this.


If you are a UK taxpayer we can reclaim 25p for every £1 you donate.

The issue

The beauty and grooming industry is present on every high street. As it is often unregulated, trafficking is an increasingly common practice, particularly in budget salons where there is a high demand for low-cost treatments. Young women and girls are the most likely to be recruited into this lucrative business, with many targeted from overseas by traffickers who prey on vulnerability. Denied their freedom and receiving less than minimum wage, victims can feel indebted to their employers, trapped in a helpless situation. Their passport is taken away, and violence or threats are routine practice: both against the victim as well as their family back home.

With every day that passes, a victim of human trafficking suffers, hidden in plain sight. We have the opportunity of changing futures by helping women and girls make more informed decisions, and supporting communities to spot the signs.

Learn to spot the signs

Women and girls are being exploited into slave labour by employers who prey on their vulnerabilities. By spotting the signs you can help change the course of an individual’s future.
