Consultant to undertake Baseline Assessment for SPACE Project
Thanks to recent actions taken by Thailand’s government, Thai government agencies today can more easily identify survivors of human trafficking. The complex global nature of trafficking practices demands an integrated effort by the global community. In this spirit, Save the Children is working with the Thai government, civil society organizations and other partners, to enable the provision of quality protection and support services offered to trafficking survivors in shelters.
In order to provide the delivery of dependable and consistent quality care in all government shelters to survivors of trafficking, standard operating procedures (SOPs), guidelines on best practices for survivor support, and the commitment and know-how to consistently apply these tools, are needed by shelter staff. To address this need, the Standardized Protection and Care Embraced in government shelters in Thailand (SPACE) project will work closely with the Thai Ministry of Social Development and Human Security (MSDHS), the Division of Anti Trafficking in Persons, and other potential partners (e.g. Association of Social Workers, Thammasart University), to ensure survivors of trafficking (women, men, girls and boys) in these centers are safe and consistently receive quality rights-based and gender sensitive care and support services that meet national standards for rehabilitation and reintegration.
As part of this work, Save the Children and our project partners will develop and pilot training materials to support the Division of Anti-Trafficking in Persons’ Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for quality protection and support procedures, as well as produce country guidelines on best practices for case management and individual care plans for survivors of trafficking that meet national and international standards. We will also advocate for the nationwide systematic implementation of the SOPs and guidelines by all government shelter staff when providing protection and support services to the survivors they serve. Two women’s shelters with which Save the Children has already established a strong, trusting working relationship will initially roll out the training.
