There are gaps in knowledge over issues of identification of victims of trafficking and responses once identified as
well as specialist provisions of services, despite the recent creation of a refuge for trafficked women in Wales. Gender- specific and child-friendly policy initiatives are at the heart of effective enforcement and protection strategies. These need to be tailored to the particular needs of local communities in Wales. Strategies that reflect the different landscapes – rural, urban, language, cultural – all require co-ordination in a national (Welsh) centre for trafficking. From that multi- agency point, training, awareness-raising, advocacy and many other services can be provided and tailored for the needs of the people in Wales.
