Trafficking is moving people from one place to another in order to exploit them. It is sometimes called modern slavery. Children are trafficked for sex, benefit fraud, forced marriage, forced labour on farms, in factories and even in people's homes. Sometimes this is about taking groups of young people to parties to abuse and exploit them and rewarding them with money, gifts and alcohol. Young people can be forced into criminal activities such as begging, transporting drugs, and street theft. You can read real life stories of children who have been trafficked on the NSPCC website.
There are organisations that specifically support children and young people that have been a victim of trafficking, like ECPAT UK. You can call ECPAT Youth Programme on 020 7607 2136 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
