The anti-trafficking office provides specialised direct support to victims of human trafficking and to women engaging in prostitution, who have access to a designated case worker for initial assessment and support and to the anti-trafficking officer for advice on national referral mechanism. The Doras legal team are also available for more specific legal advice. Services available to those affected by human trafficking include the following:
- Casework via drop-in centre caseworkers, and anti-trafficking office.
