Human Trafficking Foundation

The Human Trafficking Foundation (HTF) was created to support and add value to the work of the many charities and agencies operating to combat modern slavery in the UK. The HTF aims to ensure that policy makers and statutory agencies have a greater understanding of the rapidly changing realities of human trafficking, as witnessed by those working on the ground.

The estimated figure of people held in modern slavery around the world today ranges from 21 million to 45 million. In the UK there may be as many as 13,000 people held in slavery. Exploitation takes a variety of forms, but most commonly forced labour, sexual exploitation, domestic servitude, and forced criminal activity.

The HTF brings together NGOs, local authorities, law enforcement, academics and other experts to learn from their first-hand experience of supporting victims of modern slavery and disrupting trafficking. The Awards recognise organisations, groups and individuals from within this network of people who dedicate their energies to fighting modern slavery.
