Why the barcode?

When people are held as slaves, they are treated as objects that can be bought and sold, with the ways in which they are exploited limited only by the imagination of their trafficker. 

Victims are made to feel powerless and isolated, and are tricked into thinking there is no one who will help them. 

By wearing this tattoo, not only will money be raised for The Salvation Army’s Victim Care Fund, which provides additional support to help survivors of modern slavery, but you will also be standing in solidarity with victims and helping raise awareness that there are people and agencies out there to help them.

How we help

The Salvation Army has held the government contract to provide specialist support to adult victims of modern slavery in England and Wales for more than eight years. 

In that time we have supported more than 8,000 victims, through safe accommodation, outreach support and specialist services tailored to each individual.

We operate a 24/7, confidential referral helpline 0300 303 8151 for anyone who suspects that they or someone they have come across may be a victim of modern slavery and in need of help.
