CCAT report for 2014
At the end of January the CCAT General Meeting was held in Croydon. A report from the Trustees outlined the work of CCAT during 2014. In particular, continuing extensive efforts had been put into intelligence gathering, schools work and events. As a result there is much greater public awareness in Croydon of what trafficking is all about. However, it was emphasised that there is an ongoing need to help the public to spot signs in the community. The ‘Spot the Signs’ leaflet is proving to be a successful tool. In addition, the 2 films produced during 2014 are also powerful communication methods. Croydon’s input to the Modern Slavery Bill has ensured that local trafficking issues have been recognised in the drafting of the Bill. It is expected that the Bill will pass into an Act of Parliament within the next 2 months. The CCAT trustees expressed their thanks to all volunteers for their time and efforts during the last year. It is thanks to all these people that CCAT is now seen as a model of the community organisation fighting against trafficking, which is capable of being replicated elsewhere.
