Meg welcomes the new Human Trafficking Centre to Sheffield

Wednesday, October 4, 2006

The new national centre to tackle people trafficking in the UK was officially opened in Sheffield recently. The UK Human Trafficking Centre (UKHTC) will be used as a base to organise police operations, gather intelligence, formulate new policies and improve the care available to victims rescued from their captors. 


Minister for Women and Equality, and Sheffield Heeley MP, Meg Munn said:


"Human trafficking both for sexual exploitation and labour are on the increase. Many thousands of women and children suffer every year. I work closely with other ministers to tackle the problem. The new Human Trafficking Centre is the first of its kind anywhere and brings together intelligence work, detection and support for victims under one roof. By working on all aspects the centre hopes to both reduce trafficking and prosecute more traffickers while helping victims to recover from their dreadful experiences."

 

This new centre will offer support to those who have been victims of trafficking and one of the principle roles of Department for Communities and Local Government is to assist the centre in the care provided for women who have been subjected to exploitation - often in a sexual capacity.’ 


Funding for this new centre is coming from Reflex - the Government’s anti-trafficking organisation - which has also been responsible for the teams of Reflex operating in West and South Yorkshire and Humberside.  


Meg is pictured talking to one of the officials at the centre.
