Human trafficking is an on-going issue across the island of Ireland. Airports and ports both North and South are used by traffickers to bring victims in and out of the country.
Ireland is used both sides of the border for both transit and as a destination of traffickers. Traffickers bring victims through ports, such as those in Larne, Newry and Rosslare. It is difficult to estimate how many victims stay in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland or how many are moved to across the sea to the UK.
Trafficking knows no borders.
We have joined forces with Human Trafficking Resources NI to highlight that this is an all island issue that requires a joint solution.
