Empowering trafficked persons

FLEX works with a range of support organisations for vulnerable individuals to build awareness and understanding of trafficking for labour exploitation and to provide information about legal rights and assistance available. To date FLEX has provided training to 222 frontline workers from migrant, community, refugee and asylum organisations throughout the UK.  

FLEX has developed a Guide to Legal Remedies that provides organisations working with potential trafficked persons with clear information on the available legal avenues, including options for compensation and immigration remedies.

Our ongoing research in to support for and identification of those who are trafficked for labour exploitation will contribute to a new approach to the identification of trafficked persons and support across the European Union.

Our London based support work seeks to promote a rights-based response to trafficking for labour exploitation through informed policy and implementation frameworks within the Greater London Assembly and the Metropolitan Police as well as at the London borough level.
