Charlie's story

Charlie’s story shows us how easy it is for the vulnerable to be preyed upon by traffickers.

Charlie was homeless from the age of 14, he became addicted to alcohol and was approached by a man who promised him a steady income, drink and a safe place to say. When Charlie went with him he discovered that all of those promises were lies.

Charlie was exploited repeatedly by traffickers, who always seemed to find him at his most vulnerable. Find out more about how exploiters target the homeless on our Let's Talk page.
