The development project for the vulnerable asylum seekers' service provision system in Finland 2 (HAPKE 2)
The development project for the vulnerable asylum seekers' service provision system in Finland (HAPKE 2) had a broad approach to anti-trafficking. Joutseno and Oulu reception centres' project integrated promotion, prevention and corrective actions. European Refugee Fund participated in funding the project.
The main focus was on preventing and identifying labour trafficking among asylum seekers. The issue was tackled through developing services at reception centres and the National assistance system for victims of trafficking.
New anti-trafficking materials were created with the support of experts for use by reception centres, but also NGOs, the public, and other agencies. The national website www.ihmiskauppa.fi was developed further and new materials and languages added.
Reception centre staff developed their own working methods in workshops. Further trainings were provided for a variety of stakeholders.
Furthermore, the National assistance system for victims of trafficking built a webbased quality management handbook to develop its services for clients.
The project started in 2013 and is now finished.
