National research project on trafficking and modern slavery

Wednesday, 25 May 2016 - 6:55am

Can you help improve understanding of trafficking within the homelessness sector and the knowledge and skills it takes to tackle it?

The Office of the Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner has commissioned The Passage to carry out a national research project with two goals:

  • to identify the scope and scale of trafficking and modern slavery issues within the homelessness sector, and
  • to identify the knowledge and skills about dealing with trafficking and modern slavery issues that exist within the homelessness sector. 

The research is being carried out via an online survey distributed to Homeless Link members and via The Passage's own links with national faith-based groups. The Passage will also run regional focus groups and one-to-one detailed discussions.

The research programme will be run throughout the summer, leading to a launch event in September at The Passage’s St Vincent Centre, to launch the report, its findings and publicise its future recommendations.
