Since being founded in 1997, they have grown to become the world’s largest international anti-slavery organisation, working in communities in Africa, Latin America, South Asia and Southeast Asia. IJM’s unique Justice System Transformation model involves partnering with local authorities to rescue victims of violence, bring criminals to justice, restore survivors and strengthen justice systems. Each year, IJM sees hundreds of violent traffickers convicted for their crimes, thousands of individuals rescued from slavery and tens of thousands of justice system officials trained in the fight against human trafficking.

Human trafficking workshop

As part of the Yorkshire leg of the tour, we are also running after show workshops that aim to educate people attending on spotting the signs of trafficking thus enabling them to evaluate situations better. Contact details of organisations to approach to seek professional advice should they think they may have come across a victim will be provided. This workshop is ideal for front-line workers such as the police, fire fighters, social workers, NHS staff, postal service and shop workers, who are all likely to come across victims in their line of work. The workshop will be run by a training and development officer from Hope For Justice, a charity whose aim is to change lives and end slavery.
