Who does what?

 

It is important that each of the key agencies involved in fighting trafficking in people understands both their own roles and responsibilities and those of the other key agencies. This section looks at what these responsibilities might include, as well as those of other agencies that may become involved, the multi-agency management group and the general public. Given the different issues relating to adults and children, these are addressed separately for each key agency. 

It is clear that local situations will determine what can be done and who is best positioned to do it. This section should not be seen as prescribing who should do what, but instead presents a checklist of some of the contributions that different agencies and groups may be able to make. These lists of possible responsibilities need to be considered, reviewed and appropriate elements agreed by each local group. Decisions on who actually does what locally will be determined by the scale and nature of the local problem, the resources available and the skills in place. 

The multi-agency management group who are responsible for taking forward the local initiatives need to ensure that the specific roles and responsibilities of the different agencies are agreed and understood by all involved. Equally the issues of leadership and accountability need to be addressed from the outset. 

Again, the approach to child victims and to adult victims is likely to differ. ACPCs, for example, have specific responsibilities for child protection. There is also specific guidance for the protection of adults. It is also likely that different individuals within agencies will be involved depending on whether or not the victim is a child.
