Human Trafficking is a form of modern day slavery in which persons, most often women and girls, are forced, threatened, coerced or deceived for the purpose of labour exploitation, commercial sexual exploitation or servitude. GCSS provides support to women who have been trafficked for the purposes of prostitution, pornography, lap dancing and stripping.
GCSS, through its TARA (Trafficking Awareness Raising Alliance) Service, works with women, over the age of 18 yrs when there are concerns that she has been trafficked for commercial sexual exploitation. The team can provide the following help to women recovered across Scotland.
In addition GCSS participates in UK and Scottish Government working groups tackling Human Trafficking and works closely with all Scottish Police Forces to facilitate women's engagement with the Criminal Justice process.
