WHAT DOES A PERSON WHO HAS BEEN TRAFFICKED LOOK LIKE?
SPOT THE TRAFFIK: A tool to equip community members and frontline professionals to identify and help victims of trafficking.
A local authority employee may be the only person to enter a house and see someone who is trapped and being exploited. STOP THE TRAFFIK has always believed that community members, in particular frontline professionals, are critical agents of change in the fight to disrupt trafficking routes and uncover hidden victims.
Funded by the Home Office and developed with Sea Communications, STOP THE TRAFFIK is excited to announce the launch of SPOT THE TRAFFIK, a pioneering multimedia tool. This new resource includes free online materials and the opportunity for face-to-face training.
This innovative project provides a clear, accessible route for frontline professionals to get informed and equipped about what to look for so they are alert for indicators that are cause for concern.
“In recent years it has been encouraging to read the columns written and reports presented raising the issue of people trafficking within the UK. However, our thinking and our talking is not enough. STOP THE TRAFFIK exists to find ways to make it possible for anyone, in this case frontline professionals, to act wisely and effectively to stop it. We believe that SPOT THE TRAFFIK will set people free.”
Ruth Dearnley, CEO STOP THE TRAFFIK
