Sex trafficking is a modern day form of slavery that, whilst almost invisible, is undoubtedly happening today in the UK. The majority of victims are women and girls. Trafficked women do not work the streets - they are hidden in brothels, massage parlours and saunas. Victims suffer horrendous long-term abuse at the hands of both their traffickers and from those who visit them for paid sexual services. The ATA is a UK-based charity working to tackle sex trafficking. This site is designed to help you gather information about sex trafficking into the UK and brings together resources and data produced by ATA, as well as other expert organisations.
