As I prepare to take break in ‘Sunny Spain’, I very quickly take one last look around the house, just to make sure I haven’t forgotten something important.

While racing upstairs I look at where my ‘office’ sits at the top of my stairs.  For a few moments my mind drifts away thinking about Invisible Traffick, thinking about how much I love being part of this organisation, thinking about how important it is to move the Charity forwards, reaching wider.

I have been Coordinating the the Invisible Traffick IRL base, here in Sligo, for two years now.  Up until recently, the need for an actual office or premises has not been high on the list of priorities. Getting a team together, introducing IT to community groups, services and the ordinary man and woman on the street; this was what I needed to spend my time and energy doing. Using every opportunity to create awareness about the fact that Human Trafficking is happening within our community, ‘hidden in plain sight’.  That was my goal!

Now, two years on, it’s great to see that this is beginning to happen. Here in Sligo, more and more people are hearing about this form of Modern Day Slavery and are becoming much more aware of it’s existence.

But, as I look at my makeshift office, well organised as it is, I look forward to the day I can walk into a real office space.   And yes, there will be challenges, and costs, to running that office, but I know that we need one, and we need one sooner rather than later.

Invisible Traffick IRL has a job to do…. to make the invisible…visible,  and part of that is a ‘visible’ premises.

I’m so grateful for my very patient husband who has never once complained about the times he narrowly avoided falling over my storage boxes or my Invisible Traffick bits and pieces.  But he’s with me on this one, it will be great to have a desk and filing cabinet, and shelves, and not just at the top of our stairs.

There is a beautiful saying – ‘from little acorns, mighty oaks grow’,  I think this is what I hold on to when I think of my ‘little’ office….and Invisible Traffick.


Recently, Invisible Traffick have been experiencing technical problems as some of our users were being diverted to another site whilst trying to access our website and Facebook page.

Thank you.


Our lovely Visi’s World Coordinator visited Kells and Connor Primary School in Ballymena last week, to give a presentation in assembly about the Visi’s World Education Pack.  The principal was in touch later that day to thank her:

‘Thank you again for your assembly this morning which was pitched really well for the children in our school. The resources look great in the pack and the little video clip works on school system. Good luck with your work in the future.’

At IT we believe it is vitally important to teach children about human trafficking in a child friendly manner.  We believe the Visi’s World Pack gives teachers the appropriate tools to do this.  If you would like us to come to a school near you please do not hesitate to get in touch!


We were at the SERC (South East Regional College) campus open day on the 7th and 8th of September, talking to young people about how they can get involved with IT.  If you’re a young person wanting to get involved with IT or find out more information on how you can get involved with IT then please be in touch!


Invisible Traffick was invited to Hillsborough Castle Garden Party on the 7th of September 2017.

It was a cold, raining and a blustery day at Hillsborough Castle last Thursday, however when HRH Prince Harry arrived he brought a warmth to the day. He was accompanied by Rt Hon James Brokenshire MP and Arlene Foster MLA. Prince Harry assisted in the planting of an apple tree and all the guests who were budding photographers were earnestly trying to capture every glance of the Prince on camera!

Invisible Traffick is continuing to spread the awareness of Human Trafficking and was speaking with Secretary of State James Brokenshire about the work of Invisible Traffick. He was very keen to hear what we are doing locally here in NI and said that this was an area he is both interested in and deeply concerned about. The Directors spent a few minutes discussing the problems NI are facing with the growing rise of persons being trafficked within the Province.
