"Bawso gave me back my self esteem. Gave me back my confidence   and today I'm an independent person again"

Human trafficking is the second largest illegal trade in the world. It's the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Victims of human trafficking are subjected to coercion, exploitation, deception, kidnap, false imprisonment and rape.

Bawso offers outreach support to both male and female victims. Last year we supported 250 service users and 114 children under our Diogel Trafficking Project.     

‘ I didn’t know what you have to do, and my support worker here (Bawso) has helped me to understand what I have to do and the solicitor has also said I have rights like everybody else.

I want to move forward with my daughter here because if I go back we will be killed or the same things will happen again and I don’t want that.

I want to feel safe with my daughter. I worry about this all the time. She is only four years old but has seen so many bad things’
