What we do

We work in both Albania and UK to help those most vulnerable to Human Trafficking. In addition to providing immediate shelter and care to those rescued, we run a number of programs to prevent future Trafficking.

Advice and Service Centres

Based on the UK Citizen's Advice model, our Advice and Service Centres provide a range of advice and advocacy but importantly act as a portal for individuals vulnerable to or who have experienced human trafficking

In 2022 ASCs handled 1446 cases

Youth Employment programme

For many in Albania, Especially young people, finding employment represents a real challenge. The despair they face makes them extremely vulnerable to traffickers. Our programme seeks to provide training, internships and employment opportunities

Education for Community Development

We have been extremely active in Albania to raise ethical standards in education and work in local communities putting this into practice. We work to raise awareness about the dangers of trafficking and encourage self-help projects to improve community life
