    Freedom United is the world’s largest anti-slavery community.

    In every country around the world, people are working for little or no pay, controlled by threats, debt, and violence. We call it by many names, but it amounts to the same thing: modern slavery. Slavery is illegal everywhere, but it continues to thrive because so many of us don't understand it, don't want to think about it or don't know how to change it.

    It is believed around 5.5 million are in child slavery. Children in slavery are usually surrounded by violence, abuse and threats. They work long hours doing hazardous, tiring work for little or no pay, and can be far from their homes and family.

    Child slavery can take many forms – forced labour, domestic servitude or debt bondage. Children are also trafficked, forced into marriage and armed conflict, exploited for the profit of others.

    According to the International Labour Organisation (ILO) there are at least 53 million domestic workers worldwide, not including child domestic workers. Domestic workers are especially vulnerable to conditions of modern slavery.

    Domestic servitude might mean being coerced into working without rest and prevented from leaving the house. They may have their pay withheld, be abused, treated as a commodity and controlled by their employer.
