Anti Human Trafficking Resources

The Scottish Government published a Trafficking and Exploitation Strategy in May 2017.  This sets out the Scottish Government's approach and commitment to tackling human trafficking by supporting and protecting victims, disrupting the activities of perpetrators and addressing the conditions which foster trafficking, both in Scotland and elsewhere.  The strategy can be accessed here.

Launched in July 2013, Human Trafficking: Reading the Signs is an awareness raising leaflet produced by Police Scotland and Scottish Government to raise awareness of the signs of human trafficking amongst professionals across Scotland.  You can download the leaflet here.

COSLA hosted an anti-trafficking conference in August 2012.  The resources from that event are provided below:
