Project No-1 was set up in 2011 to specifically work on the issue of sexual exploitation and human trafficking. The project seeks to reach those involved and provide support and information to these most vulnerable individuals, and to assist them in exiting exploitation.
Project No-1 also works on the prevention of sexual exploitation and human trafficking by working directly with young people in schools around Scotland, raising their personal safety skills and thereby enabling young people to keep themselves and each other safe from harm. The school programme also enables and empowers young people to disclose any abuse which allows for early intervention.
Project No-1 is also developing a similar programme for use with parents of young children.
