SOCA, August 2012, 19 pages

This assessment was produced to provide an indication of the nature and scale of human trafficking during 2011.

This is the first an attempt has been made to describe the full extent of human trafficking in the United Kingdom (UK).

The assessment explores the number of potential victims of trafficking identified, their  country of origin and exploitation types, as well as enablers to trafficking, including recruitment techniques, transport methods and documentation.
