WHAT WE DO
We work to enable survivors to build independent, purposeful lives after through the organisations 3 mission pillars:
SURVIVOR SUPPORT: The Day 46 Programme based on confidence and employability workshops. 1:1 employability coaching and access to college education and volunteer placements, with long term community and leadership development for survivors of trafficking
RESEARCH: We provide credible research on topics related to human trafficking by getting behind opportunities to challenge and influence policy change for the benefit of survivors of trafficking.
AWARENESS: We build awareness of modern day slavery and trafficking, helping the public, our supporters and communities to know how they can play their part and lend a voice to the global issue.
We help survivors tell their story if they choose to, in any way they feel comfortable, as a platform to creating awareness and instigate change globally regarding human trafficking.
