The problem needing to be solved

For the past 18 months, Project Respect has been delivering free capacity building workshops to frontline workers of the community sector on how best to support women in the sex industry, including identifying indicators of trafficking. These workshops have primarily been funded by local government grants. These grants will not continue for much longer, however we want to continue to deliver the workshops, as there has been significant interest from the sector, and positive impacts, including frontline staff identifying additional cases of human trafficking, particularly in the family violence sector.

The workshops directly relate to the state government family violence reforms, and women in the sex industry have been included in the state governments recent Everybody Matters Statement, a 10 year strategy to address diversity and inclusivity. We believe as an outcome of this, there will be an increased appetite for these workshops, and would like to transition to a fee for service model to assist in creating new income streams for the organisation.

Additionally, we are currently developing a specific full day workshop on Human Trafficking for the service sector, that we would like to commence as a fee for service model from inception.

In order to do this, we need to undertake a scoping and feasibility study for the workshops, to ascertain if there is an appetite for Project Respect to deliver fee for service training, including what sort of fee should be charged.

Responsibilities of the online volunteering project

  • Undertake a scoping and feasibility study regarding the training within the community sector
  • Develop a strategy to transition Project Respect's current training to a fee for service model
  • Include in the strategy how Project Respect can/will launch our under development Human Trafficking Training to the community sector.

The benefit to you, the volunteer

Assist a very small but well known and established NFP to diversify income streams, while also gaining a better understanding of the trafficking landscape in Australia.
