FACT SHEET #10: THE COMMUNITY RESPONSE TO HUMAN TRAFFICKING

This factsheet examines the community response to human trafficking, including how Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) respond to human trafficking.


NGOs play a vital role in identifying and supporting people who have been trafficked, as well as raising community awareness of all forms of trafficking in Australia.


Sydney Trafficking Response Network


Anti-Slavery Australia convenes the Sydney Trafficking Response Network to bring together communities agencies to share resources, consider policy development and develop best practices. Twice yearly the Sydney Trafficking Response Network meets with representative of government agencies to consult about anti-trafficking initiatives and developments.


What is the National Roundtable on Human Trafficking and Slavery


The National Roundtable on Human Trafficking and Slavery was convened in June 2008 to strengthen Australia's response to people trafficking through a partnership between the Commonwealth Government and community organisations. The Roundtable has been a valuable tool to combat trafficking, protect trafficked people and prosecute offenders.


Guidelines for NGOs working with trafficked people


The Roundtable also established a working group of NGOs and government agencies, which produced the NGO Guidelines for Working with Trafficked People and the first multi-lingual fact sheets for trafficked people.
