Slavery is the fastest growing crime in the world. There are thought to be 40 million people enslaved worldwide and, based on our own research using police data, more than 100,000 victims in the UK alone.
Justice and Care is a multi-award winning charity, committed to fighting modern slavery. We are passionate about bringing freedom to men, women and children who have been exploited. We help them rebuild their lives, work with police to bring to justice those responsible, and we use all of our frontline experience to spark systemic change.
Justice and Care works in South Asia, the UK and Eastern Europe. We work to keep communities that are most at risk to human traffickers safe. We work alongside police to release and care for victims, to uncover and dismantle criminal networks and to spark systemic change. We run innovative frontline work, rigorously test it and share what works to drive change at scale.
We have a strong track record of impact:
5,063 Lives rescued
1,134 Suspected traffickers arrested
4,157 Survivors supported
1,275 Exploiters prosecuted
51,164 Police officers, public prosecutors, and community leaders trained in trafficking awareness
We know we cannot beat slavery alone, which is why we work closely with others including Governments, prosecutors, the police, other charities, businesses and others to fight the issue. Our work is always victim-centric and is focussed on learning best practice and then shaping systemic change.
Our work has led to major systemic change in India, Bangladesh and the UK. We have also won major awards in recent years including the coveted Thomson Reuters Stop Slavery Award and a UK Third Sector Award. Meanwhile, our groundbreaking work has received strong media attention including in The Sunday Times Magazine, the Guardian, ITN and C4 news among many others.
