Objectives and results

The objective is to establish a multi-agency framework of transnational activities to tackle THB in order to exchange good practices on prevention and victim services. A new victim-centred identification & support model should be developed with a proactive intelligence led approach.

Community engagement and awareness raising actions should target “at risk” groups, prevent re-trafficking and provide victim reintegration.

Three transnational workshops and three roundtables should provide a platform for exchange of good practice. A final toolkit should contribute to a better information system.

Training, support and consultancy will be provided to all UK based EU Embassies to improve victim care. The partner in Perugia will develop measures to support reintegration of victims. The Lithuanian partner should especially target women and girls at risks of trafficking for sexual purposes.
