Neighbourhood Watch Coordinators - Spotting The Signs of Modern Day Slavery


Dear Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator,
Many of your schemes were set up to raise awareness about crime in your area, to encourage neighbourliness and in particular to try to reduce incidents of burglary, theft and anti social behaviour.  These crimes still occur across the communities of Cheshire, however in recent years the police and other community safety partners have had to deal with new crimes, Modern Day Slavery is one of these.
The Cheshire Anti-Slavery Network CIC connects the various agencies involved in tackling modern day slavery in Cheshire and beyond.  Please take a few minutes to consider the points in this e mail and encourage your members and the wider community to be aware.  This is a crime happening in Cheshire now and we need your help in reporting suspicious incidents to us.

What Is Modern Slavery?  Spot the Signs

Here are some of the signs that could help you spot a potential victim of trafficking.

If you do suspect someone is a potential victim, please call Cheshire Police on 101 or if someone is in immediate danger, please call 999. There is also a 24 Referral Helpline hosted by the Salvation Army on 0300 3038151.

  • Be fearful of police/authorities
  • Be unaware they have been trafficked and believe they are simply in a bad job
  • Have no identity documents in their personal possession, and little or no finances of their own
  • Exhibit signs of psychological trauma
  • Have limited freedom of movement and are unable to leave their place of work
  • Have limited access to medical care
  • Seem to be in debt to someone
  • Be regularly moved to avoid detection
  • Have limited freedom of movement and are unable to leave their place of work
  • Be fearful of the trafficker or those they are working for
If you would like to gain a wider understanding about this crime in Cheshire please look at the Cheshire Anti-Slavery Network web site:
