Lucia’s Story

Home | Case Studies | Lucia’s Story

Lucia was a young woman from Romania. She approached the Minority Communities Service in January, having heard it mentioned as somewhere safe to go if you need help. Lucia confided in a member of our team that she had been promised a job in the UK but was now being held against her will by the person who arranged her transport and forced to clean his home without receiving any pay.

By working with our contacts at Perth & Kinross Council, the team were able to arrange for Lucia to have a safe place to stay for a few days while she decided what to do next. We supported her to make a report to the police.

Lucia decided she didn’t want to stay in the UK after her experience, so we helped her to contact her family, let them know she was okay, and make arrangements to return to Romania, where her two little boys were waiting for her.
