Operation Aidant is co-ordinated by the National Crime Agency (NCA). The operation is run nationally every year and involves local police forces working alongside partner agencies to focus on vulnerability, exploitation and modern slavery.

Modern slavery and human trafficking (MSHT) in the UK is far more prevalent than previously thought, according to the National Crime Agency.

The campaign works to highlight the signs of modern slavery which people may encounter in their everyday lives, and encourage them to confidently report it.

As part of our activity, we have launched a video encouraging victims to report offences which has been translated into Albanian, Bulgarian, Chinese Mandarin, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Romanian, Slovakian and Vietnamese.
