Croydon Community Against Trafficking (CCAT) has been campaigning against modern slavery and trafficking of persons for over 15 years. We have a strong track record - in the last year we trained over 930 persons on modern slavery and its signs, reached 1000 pupils, led a social media campaign on labour rights, developed and showcased an original play and have been featured in a number of newspapers and spoken at five Conferences. Our work has been recognised by the Anti-Slavery Commissioners Office and are a well-established and reputable charity in this field.
Human trafficking and modern slavery are thought to be amongst the most widespread crimes in the world, affecting millions of men, women and children each day. Through intelligence gathering, campaigning, community engagement, advocacy to local authorities and education, CCAT is shining a light in dark places to uncover this illicit activity and disrupt it at its source. Our purpose is to build a community that is resilient to trafficking. In order to do this we need to understand the local hot spots and trends, which can only happen with the coordinated gathering of data. We then use that data to encourage multi stakeholder community campaigns to inform, empower and activate community change. We are intent on measuring impact.
