Working with partners to reduce human trafficking
We believe everyone deserves to live in freedom with dignity and respect and we are committed to a slavery free Scotland.
We are committed to working in partnership with statutory services, NGO’s, corporates and others to ensure maximum effectiveness in the eradication of human trafficking. Wherever possible we encourage, enable and empower others who share our vision.
Scottish Government’s Human Trafficking –
Implementation Group – Action Area One
The Scottish Government’s Human Trafficking and Exploitation Strategy 2017 sets out three Action Areas with Implementation Groups taking responsibility for driving forward actions and meeting the outcomes set out in the Strategy. The SOHTIS Development Manager has been co-opted onto the Action Area One Implementation Group which has a responsibility for Identifying Victims and Supporting them to Safety and Recovery. By contributing to this group we hope we will be able to influence policy and practice ensuring long term empowering solutions which are victim focused.
Evidence based policy and practice is cruicial to effectively eradicating human trafficking. We are working in partnership with universities to support quality, collaborative and applied research into human trafficking in Scotland.
We are working closely with the University of Edinburgh, the Open University and The Consortium for Anti-Trafficking Researchers in Scotland (CATRiS) housed within the The Third Generation Project, University of St Andrews on a range of research opportunities.
