The Helen Bamber Foundation (HBF) is a specialist clinical and human rights charity that works with people seeking asylum and refugees who are Survivors of trafficking, torture and other forms of extreme human cruelty. We believe that all Survivors should have safety, freedom and power to rebuild their lives
Asylum Aid is a committed and collaborative charity dedicated to protecting people from persecution by providing legal representation and access to justice for refugees and people seeking asylum.
In 2020, Helen Bamber Foundation and Asylum Aid came together to form the Helen Bamber Foundation Group, sharing our common mission of giving Survivors the strength to fly.
We exist to ensure that all Survivors of trafficking and torture are free, healthy and safe, are protected from re-victimisation, detention and poverty, and have the ability and agency to integrate in and contribute to the communities around them. We use our unique expertise to drive change and improve practice and policy for all Survivors, delivering impact beyond the clients we serve directly.
We are supported by our President, Dame Emma Thompson, who is a fantastic champion of our mission, and who hosts our flagship event, The Conversation, every year.
