The Helen Bamber Foundation is an active member of the Anti-Trafficking Monitoring Group (ATMG).
This group is made up of nine leading UK-based anti-trafficking organisations: Amnesty International UK, Anti-Slavery International, BAWSO, Bristol Counter-Trafficking Coalition, ECPAT UK, Helen Bamber Foundation, Kalayaan, POPPY project and TARA. We also work closely with the Human Trafficking Foundation and STOP THE TRAFFIK. Together the Group monitors the UK’s implementation of the Council of Europe Convention against Trafficking in Human Beings. The group also examines all types of trafficking, including internal trafficking and the trafficking of British nationals.
We are pleased to announce the publication of The Anti-Trafficking Monitoring Group’s new report ‘All Change: Preventing Trafficking in the UK’. you can read a copy here, or read an executive summary here.
The new report, the result of research carried out in 2010-11, assesses the UK’s performance in relation to trafficking prevention in accordance with the British Government’s obligations under the Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings. It also highlights good practice in prevention programmes and offers recommendations to strengthen the UK’s ability to prevent this crime in the future.
All Change follows the first Anti-Trafficking Monitoring Group report “Wrong kind of victim? One year on: an analysis of UK measures to protect trafficked persons”, which reviewed the UK Government’s anti-trafficking efforts one year after the entry into force of the European Convention.
