The REACH Project is a European Commission funded project that aims to raise awareness of trafficking as a form of violence against women and girls and improve responses to this issue across the whole island of Ireland.
The key partners in this Project (see below) have worked together to develop an awareness raising campaign to reach out to vulnerable women and girls in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland who have been trafficked, or are at risk of being trafficked into prostitution.
We want to ensure that all women and girls who find themselves in a difficult situation in the sex trade are aware of the support that is available to them and where they can seek help.
Key partners on the REACH Project include: The Department of Justice and Equality, Republic of Ireland, Ruhama, the HSE and An Garda Síochana. Key partners in Northern Ireland include the Department of Justice, the PSNI and Northern Ireland Women’s Aid.
