Are you a victim of human trafficking?

Help is available!

You can get help from the state as well as from NGOs (non-governmental organisations). Depending on your situation, help may include for example safe housing, health care services, guidance an legal aid. A victim of human trafficking has special rights in Finland.


You can contact helpers to talk about your situation, and to find out how you can be helped. All information about you and your case will be kept secret and handled in strict confidence. Contacting will not bind you to anything.
