We aim to get 13,000 people wearing bright nail varnish – representing one for every slave in the UK today and raise vital funds at the same time to keep our support services open and running.
To highlight modern slavery and mark Anti-Slavery Week (17th-23rd October) Unseen has launched an exciting campaign – Let's Nail It!
It is predicted there are 13,000 slaves in the UK. It is a crime and an abuse of human rights. It is happening all around us but often goes unnoticed – quite literally unseen. People working in everyday jobs can be victims. In the UK, victims have been found working on farms, in factories, nail bars, car washes, hotels and restaurants – places we all may visit, walk past or even frequent. They might not be wearing chains, but they might as well.
Let's Nail It! aims to raise awareness that slavery is happening in our communities and to encourage everyone – the public, frontline professionals and businesses – to stand in solidarity with survivors and those not yet identified.
Unseen is determined to do something about it, but we need your help.
Starting in Anti-Slavery Week (17th October) we aim to get 13,000 people – one person for every slave in the UK today – wearing bright coloured nail varnish to highlight this crime and raise vital funds to keep our safe-houses and support services open.

Enchanted by the promise of work in England, Yee decided to trust the man who visited her village and offered her a job. But her dream, however, turned to a nightmare. She was traded between trafficking gangs, including a brothel owner, and when Unseen met Yee she was being forced to work in a nail bar, terrified her family would be harmed if she left. Thanks to the police and Unseen, Yee was able to get the help she needed to start a new life.
