Human Trafficking in the West Midlands.

At the Compass Jobs Fair on March 4th, the West Mids Regional Anti-Trafficking Network (RAT), one of Stop the Traffik's regional hubs, and the Adavu Project will be co-presenting a workshop and delivering training on the reality of trafficking in the UK today.

After the seminar and throughout the day, the Stop the Traffik and ADAVU teams will be on hand to answer any questions and provide more information at stand 30.

The WM RAT exists for active frontline practioners, from both statutory and non statutory sectors, who may encounter trafficked persons through the work they do.
The Adavu Project is aimed at helping faith and community groups in the West Midlands learn how to respond to human trafficking.

 A spokesperson for Adavu explained “We want to draw people into hope, we engage with this issue because we not only believe that human beings are not commodities to be bought, sold and exploited, but individuals loved by and created by God, full of potential. We believe that the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness cannot overcome it; that there is always hope that lives can and will be transformed and people enabled to become more of who God created them to be.”
With a grant from the Mission in Britain Fund, The Adavu Project has developed a training and awareness-raising session exploring the following questions:

  • What is human trafficking?
  • Who does it affect?
  • What are the signs and indicators?
  • How should we respond if we have concerns?

A particular priority is the continued work with other agencies to develop better support for men and women directly affected by human trafficking. Adavu’s hope is to enable men and women to take the small steps to begin to transform their lives, realise their potential, and to have opportunities to use the gifts and skills they have in order to make a better life for themselves and their families.
Adavu would be delighted to speak with anyone interested in organising an awareness-raising session or event in their community, or in finding out more about what they do.
