Exploitation is a hidden crime which often happens out of sight, leaving victims at serious risk of harm. It is a major local and national issue. Within Devon increasing numbers of vulnerable children and adults are being identified as victims of exploitation.

This toolkit is for anyone who, through their paid or voluntary work, may come across people who are vulnerable to exploitation. It will help you understand, identify and report signs of exploitation, and access guidance and support. You can explore the toolkit using the tabs above.

If you are a member of the public, and you are concerned that exploitation may be happening to yourself or someone else, you can find support here.

Information about this toolkit and its development can be found here.
