The purpose of this study is to aid practitioners and researchers in understanding the impact of COVID-19 on modern slavery in the United Kingdom. This report seeks to highlight the key findings of a scoping study undertaken at St Mary’s University as part of the MA in Human Trafficking, Migration, and Organised Crime that would be of value and interest to those working in the sector. Understanding the impacts of the pandemic on modern slavery is essential to appropriately mitigate risks and safeguard vulnerable people such as children, women, migrants, and survivors of modern slavery. 134 studies were analysed to answer the research question, “What are the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on modern slavery in the United Kingdom?”
