London Council has commissioned GLE Group to review the potential impact of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games on human trafficking, in the context of a possible increase of people entering the UK due to human trafficking.
While international and national laws are in place to combat trafficking, London boroughs and other organisations offer services that aim to mitigate the impact. Local organisations highlight good practice and the value of multi-agency working, close cooperation between agencies and maximising existing resources.
The report describes the activities that are already in place to mitigate human trafficking, addresses the risks in London at present and describes what has happened at past major sporting events.
