"Did you know young people who miss school, who are on the street late at night; or who run away because of problems at home who have been lured into the digital culture, could be targeted by traffickers?
Human Trafficking is where adults can make money off of ‘thrown away’ youths whose families have abandoned them by forcing them to work or have sex for next to nothing in very bad living conditions! From the migrant who cannot speak the language to the child who is feeling neglected, Human Traffickers are watching and waiting in the form of father figures who give positive attention and affection! Please be aware. If you are suspicious about the way a young person is being handled by an adult call the Police! BBCS4Luton is an out of hours social enterprise that offers counselling, advice and support to those who have been abused by power and trust. Tel: 07957 540 899 for more information."

WHAT WE DO

We are Blackbright Community Services Limited (BBS4Luton), an out of hours Social Enterprise that supports those abused by power and trust.

Our aim is stop human trafficking from getting a foothold in Luton and to raise awareness to help prevent vulnerable persons fleeing from the perpetrator into the hands of the trafficker.

BBCS4Luton aims to prevent human trafficking in Luton by raising awareness of the unacceptable practices involved in the trafficking trade and will work in partnership and in collaboration with existing agencies/ services to expose those who prey on vulnerable persons.

BBCS intends to promote a paradigm shift that seeks to reduce the demand or desire to exploit the vulnerable, via information programmes, awareness raising workshops/conferences and a resource publication.

BBCS informs how we can avoid being  complicit in  exploitation, by listing goods and products that it believes are in violation of Fair Trade, (i.e., produced by forced labour or exploitative practices).
