Overview of service

Unseen is a UK charity with its head office in Bristol. We provide safehouses and support in the community for survivors of trafficking and modern slavery. We also run the UK Modern Slavery & Exploitation Helpline and work with individuals, communities, business, governments, other charities and statutory agencies to stamp out slavery for good.

Unseen was established in 2008 in response to the realisation of how wide spread the problem of trafficking was in the UK and worldwide.

Unseen’s purpose is to work towards a world without slavery. We combine a micro and macro approach so that we both support exploited people & tackle the systemic issues of slavery. The expertise and insight gained in each area help us perform effectively across all of our work.

We focus on three main areas as we work towards a world without slavery;
- Supporting survivors and potential victims of slavery; by providing access to a range of specialist services, enabling them to safely recover and develop resilient independent lives
- Equipping stakeholders; by providing training, advice and resources to facilitate the identification and support of potential victims of slavery.
- Influencing systemic changes; by using our experience and research to impact and inspire transformation across legislation, policy and society.
