Call for Evidence

Call for Evidence

We were determined to learn the nature, extent, causes, and policy and practices in relation to human trafficking in Scotland. To do this we gathered evidence from a range of interests. Our call for evidence was targeted at all organisations in Scotland’s civil society and the public and private sectors with an interest in or knowledge of this issue. Below are the details of our call for call for evidence. 


We recognise that human trafficking is hard to penetrate and we think that many organisations in Scotland are concerned it is happening in their areas. So we are interested in not only your knowledge and experiences but also your opinions on trafficking as only this will get us closer to understanding this pernicious phenomenon.


How to return the questionnaire

The questionnaire shouldn’t take too long to complete. We hope you will answer all the questions and give as much information and evidence as possible. However we will be equally grateful if you prefer to answer only some questions. Please give us your response by Friday 25 March by:
