The Medaille Trust believes that no human being should be bought or sold, and desires a world where the trafficking of human beings for sexual, economic and labour exploitation has been eradicated.
In 2017 the Trust operated nine houses and a families centre. These houses serve men, women and dependent children. The Trust’s services range from first-stage low level needs to high level needs, and second-stage move on accommodation. The Trust has operated at various times one to ten safe houses across the country, as resources have allowed.
In addition the Trust delivers education and awareness training to schools, community groups and interested parties. This is supported by a network of representatives linked to the Catholic Diocesan structure. On specific subjects, related to trafficking, where the Trust feels it has experience or knowledge that should be heard, it engages in public advocacy. The Trust participates in national and international partnerships on anti-trafficking projects.
