Trafficking Awareness Raising Alliance (TARA)
by Community Safety Glasgow ( Rights & Representation, Citizenship & Immigration, Discrimination & Human Rights )
Community Safety Glasgow established TARA, our support service for trafficking survivors, to help identify and support women who may have been trafficked for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation.
CSG believes that trafficking is fuelled by the demand from the commercial sex industry and that commercial sexual exploitation is a form of violence against women that is harmful to women, families and communities.
The service works in partnership to provide comprehensive, individual assessments of need, including risk.
Support can include:
crisis accommodation, dependent on individual need, for up to 45 days
onward referral and support to access legal advice
referral into the UK National Referral Mechanism
advocacy with partner agencies
support to speak to Police Scotland
Support (other than accommodation) is continued on an outreach, needs-led basis for up to 12 to 18 months. A psychology service is also provided in partnership with the NHS.
Women may be eligible for the service if they are aged over 18 years, have been commercially sexually exploited in the UK (or if there is evidence of intent to exploit), have been brought into the UK or have been moved around the UK.
