Care coordinators

What is a care coordinator?

A care coordinator is a specialist on the relevant procedures with specific knowledge about the available help and care for victims of human trafficking in a specific region of The Netherlands.

What does a care coordinator do?

The care coordinator promotes the interests of victims of human trafficking and organizes coherent support. There can be regional differences in the methods they use. They can advise about the relevant care organisation. They monitor the quality and progression of the given care and are part of the care network.

Care coordinators give input to the network regarding knowledge of and expertise on human trafficking. They are available to give advise and information to professionals of other organisations.

Why does the National Referral Site often refer primarily to a care coordinator?

The National Referral Site often refers primarily to a care coordinator, because the care coordinator has up-to-date information about the available care in the specific region. There are many different types of victims and just as many different types of questions. The care coordinator can help to specify the kind of support needed and give advise about the appropriate organisation that can offer the kind of support needed. They know the organisations in the region and the way these organisations operate, also in relation to other official structures (municipalities, safe homes).

Where do we find care coordinators?

In the Platform Program the national and regional managers have decided to organize a nationwide network of care coordinators, as advised by Lenferink et al.. CoMensha has appointed a projectmananger for support in the realization of this network.

In most of the big cities like Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Groningen and Utrecht you will find care coordinators. Some work only for victims in the city itself where as others cover a larger area.

For instance in the province of Limburg you can find two care coordinators for the whole region.

What is the advice of the National Referral Site when there is no care coordinator nearby?

In areas without a care coordinator you can best get into contact with CoMensha.
