UKHTC

The United Kingdom Human Trafficking Centre (UKHTC) was established to lead the fight against human trafficking. As global experts in their field, the Centre brings together a number of agencies, from law enforcement and government to nongovernmental agencies (NGOs) and charities, to create a specialist team.

The key theme of the campaign is ‘Don’t Close Your Eyes’ and the blindfold represents the risk of people being unaware of the crime going on around them. Given the nature of the crime, victims understandably can be reluctant and frightened to come forward. As such, in order to combat this modern form of slavery both the public and the authorities need to be vigilant and aware that the crime is going on around us.

 

The blue blindfold website has advice and signs to look out for, as well as real-life stories from previous victims of trafficking in the UK.
