Project TILI is funded by Tampon Tax funding and seeks to develop a comprehensive scoping exercise to identify the issues faced by female victims of modern slavery in relation to homelessness. This project has been developed as a partnership between key charities working in the fields of domestic abuse, modern slavery, homelessness and housing. The delivery partners of the project are Crisis, Hestia, Bawso, Women’s Aid and Shared Lives Plus.
We know that homelessness and modern slavery are linked from our collective experience across service staff. But surprisingly there isn’t enough quantifiable data about the link between these issues to help inform interventions and solutions.
Our mission as a project is to break this link between homelessness and modern slavery for women in the UK.
Our aim is to gather data from England, Wales and Northern Island to better understand the link - and secondly to develop a model for the identification, support, recovery and integration of women who have escaped modern slavery and who are homeless or vulnerably housed.
Train: We are providing training to frontline service staff to help them understand more about the scale and nature of modern slavery and it’s relationship with homelessness.
Identify: By upskilling frontline service staff we aim to improve the identification of potential victims of modern slavery and we will ensure that all staff are aware of the support available and how to access it. Throughout the project we will collect data from organisations, that receive our training, about individuals they identify as potential victims of modern slavery.
Learn: With the data we collect around the issues at hand we will be better equipped to establish best practices for services and design solutions informed by the insights we can uncover.
Intelligence: We will use the data collected to disseminate intelligence to key stakeholders to enhance the national understanding of the links between homelessness and modern slavery. We will also work with data-collecting organisations to understand their needs, so we can tailor insights which feed back into their own work and practice.
If you’re interested in participating in Project TILI and would like to coordinate free training for frontline staff within your organisation then please fill out the contact form and a member of the team will get back to you.
The second meaningful way to engage with the project is by providing our team with data surrounding the link between modern slavery and homelessness. With more data we can better design services to help women that are affected by these issues.
