Young people and trafficking
The Law Centre’s Anti-Trafficking Young People Project provides a single point of contact for young victims of trafficking in Northern Ireland aged between 11 and 25.
The Anti-Trafficking Legal and Policy Adviser:
- gives information, specialist legal advice, and representation to the young people;
- helps them access services by referral to other agencies for help with safety, accommodation and welfare needs;
- supports them with applications for recognition as a victim of trafficking.
The Anti-Trafficking Legal and Policy Adviser provides specialist training to advisers and other agencies.
The adviser contributes to policy responses to inform and influence anti-trafficking policy development in Northern Ireland.
The Project is funded by Comic Relief under its Sexually Exploited and Trafficked Young People Programme.
