Close to Home – Trafficking in Norfolk

From large metropolises to small regional centres, trafficking happens in towns and cities across the UK. And despite the efforts of the local police force, Norfolk is no different. Luckily for people affected by the issue in the county, there are a number of organisations dedicated to helping the victims of trafficking get the help and support that they need to regain control of their lives.
