Work within this project uses the holistic approach expressed in our hub, tailored to the specific needs of people who have experienced human trafficking for sexual exploitation, domestic servitude and/ or forced labour.
As the only clinical organization treating survivors of human trafficking in the UK, our motivation for creating the Counter-Trafficking Project in early 2011 was two-fold. Firstly, we had seen a significant increase in the number of clients referred to us with trafficking experiences. Secondly, with increased political focus on human trafficking in the UK and internationally, we hold a unique place in informing policy based on our specific clinical expertise in working with trafficking survivors.
The project enables us to organize our clinical and non-clinical work in counter trafficking efficiently, and directs organizational resources to counter-trafficking campaign work such as Journey.
