MoRe Project

The Medaille Trust, in partnership with The Salvation Army, is excited to announce the commencement of the MoRe Project; an enhanced Move on and Resettlement pilot that is to provide adult victims of trafficking enhanced support (including accommodation) beyond their exit from services received as part of the reflection and recovery period under the National Referral Mechanism (NRM).

Currently there is no centrally funded provision of services to track and monitor victims beyond their time in the NRM. Therefore very little is known about longer term outcomes for victims as a result of support provided. The objectives of the MoRe Project are to provide an enhanced, outcome focussed model of support, concentrating on the development of skills to assist victims in obtaining sustainable employment as well as safe and secure accommodation. This work is being carried out with the aim of reducing the risk of exploitation and re-trafficking of victims as they re-integrate within society.

 This pilot will accommodate up to 10 male and 10 female victims at any one time, and will also make available support to those who are accommodated outside of the project site who would benefit from some short term support. Beneficiaries of the MoRe project will receive a maximum of 3 months support, which will include on-site training packages such as:

  • Independent living skills
  • CV writing
  • Job search
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • Cookery
  • ESOL
  • Cultural orientation

Beneficiaries will then be contacted at regular intervals, for a maximum of 12 months, with a view to monitor if the positive outcomes of the support provided have been sustained. It is intended that the information gathered from the MoRe Project will be used to inform future forming and reforming of national policies and procedures surrounding support to adult victims of modern slavery.

The Medaille Trust is grateful for the opportunity to provide the front line services for such an important and essential project in the continued fight against modern slavery.

Referrals must be made via an existing subcontractor agency under the AVMS Care and Coordination Services Contract. The Pilot will run from December 2017 until November 2019
