    Objectives and results

    The project's objective was to examine whether lessons can be learned from existing models of good practice and if these can be generalised to provide overarching principles for the development of more effective policy and practice.

    A specific output from the project were case study materials that can be disseminated for inter-professional and inter-agency training purposes. It is intended that research outputs will be used to assist in developing the direction of future work.

    At the heart of the project was the intention to support Daphne III’s aims to promote the ‘positive treatment’, ‘well-being’, equality and ‘self-fulfilment’ of those who are the victims of violence, exploitation and trafficking.
