Trafficking and Exploitation Awareness and support

Young girls and boys, men and women and children are being trafficked from one town to another in the UK, or trafficked from poor countries like Africa and Asia and parts of Eastern Europe to the UK for exploitation. We need to set up a project to raise awareness and support such victims.

Situation

Exploitation, particularly of girls is increasingly being recognised at a local and national level. Reports in the UK suggest a rising number of child victims of trafficking are controlled by exploiters using rituals. Traffickers frequently use ritual oaths to make children compliant, preventing them from running away or approaching authorities.

Solution

Set up a support and information service for young people 16-30 years who have been trafficked or involved in exploitation by any means but in particular use of deception and rituals such as juju and voodoo for purposes of prostitution, exploitation and abuse. We will recruit a Project Coordinator to develop a specialised service for trafficked and exploited young persons who have suffered from organised or ritual abuse. We will raise awareness of our services and access hard to reach victims.
