The Human Trafficking Foundation, in collaboration with the Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner, is conducting surveys to map out the support services available to survivors of modern slavery throughout the UK.
By carrying out this mapping of support services, the HTF intend to create a directory which is a beneficial resource for those working in the UK anti-trafficking sector. HTF hope to not only identify the areas where particular services are available, but also those parts of the country where services are lacking.
If you haven’t had a chance to complete the survey yet, HTF would really welcome hearing from you.
They have created a separate survey for each type of support:
– Accommodation https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/W957ZYR
– Post-Identification Casework, Outreach Support and/or Individual Advocacy https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/W95BH9L
– Drop-in Services https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WDK2DPY
– Legal Advice https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WDKZVGH
– Specialist Psychological or Therapeutic Support https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WD8P579
– Vocational Training or Education https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WDLJJHJ
Please feel free to share these surveys with any organisations you work with which may be able to contribute.
Note: The information provided will be used to create a resource on the Human Trafficking Foundation’s website. The learning from this survey will be shared with the Anti-Trafficking and Labour Exploitation Unit (ATLEU), a charity providing legal advice to survivors of trafficking. ATLEU is working on a project to connect victims with available lawyers through a free online referral system.
HTF will also share information gathered through these surveys with the Modern Slavery Helpline for private use and also public use in their directory of services contained on the Modern Slavery Helpline website. Please indicate if you do not want your details shared publicly in this way.
