Communications Consultant – Grants Program

About the program:

ASEAN–Australia Counter Trafficking (ASEAN-ACT) continues Australia’s long running collaboration with ASEAN and its member states to end human trafficking in our region. The program will principally work on strengthening the justice sector response to human trafficking, while opening up new partnerships with allied government agencies, civil society and business. It will engage all 10 ASEAN Member States in some capacity and will continue national-level programming in Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.



Civil society organisations (CSOs) play a critical role in counter-trafficking efforts in Southeast Asia, supporting responsible agencies across all types of counter-trafficking interventions, from prevention and victim identification, to victim protection and justice responses. They are a key stakeholder in ASEAN-ACT’s efforts to develop inclusive public policy and an evidence based around trafficking and counter-trafficking responses.


ASEAN-ACT initiated a grants program in 2021, providing initial support to nine CSOs, selected as partners based on their approach to counter-trafficking, experience, expertise and alignment to ASEAN-ACT’s program principles and strategies. The organisations are working to identify those who have been trafficked for different forms of labour exploitation in Southeast Asia, or vulnerable to such exploitation including as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in need of assistance. They will be helping to develop the evidence base around trafficking patterns that are under-addressed in Southeast Asia, and inform policy dialogue with the experience from programming and advocacy.


The current phase of grant activities will be implemented in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. These CSOs will carry out activities relating to: legal assistance; identification, analysis of and providing assistance to trafficked persons; advocacy, evidence and research. ASEAN-ACT has also granted regional and international organisations that will primarily be engaged in research and knowledge exchange.



The objective of this short-term consultancy is to identify, capture and communicate the progress and outcomes, and the partnerships underpinning them, of the ASEAN-ACT Grants program through creative and accessible storytelling. The communication material and products, guided by the CSOs, will effectively reach target audiences in a way that engages, promotes, educates, and influences change.
