European Communities Against Trafficking - ECAT (in future Tri-borough network Kensington, Westminster, Hammersmith and Fulham)
European Communities Against Trafficking’s mission is to establish a multi-agency, best practice approach to whole community engagement in the prevention of human trafficking alongside victim-centred intervention and aftercare, which can be replicated transnationally.
The work of this Partnership began as a two year project funded by the European Commission and delivered in partnership by the Metropolitan Police Anti-Trafficking Unit, Rahab, STOP THE TRAFFIK, Borgorete, Caritas Lithuania and is supported by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, City of Westminster, the London Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime and the Institution of the Ombudsperson for Children in Lithuania.
The ECAT project ended in December 2014 but the learning from two years of delivery is embedded into the Tri-Borough Violence Against Women and Girls Partnership and will continue within a multi-agency, coordinated community response to human trafficking across Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster.
