West Midlands Regional Anti Trafficking Network - Multi-agency approach

The West Midlands Regional Anti Trafficking Network (RAT Network) is a great example of multi-agency approach to fighting human trafficking. It has been in existence since 2008. It is a network of practitioners who are concerned with the trafficking of people in their day-to-day work, which impacts upon the West Midlands. The network covers the police areas of West Midlands, West Mercia and Staffordshire Police Services, but is not constrained by Police geographical borders. It is one of only a very small number of networks in the UK, but is by far the largest.
