Nic does RideLondon 2022!

I'm cycling 100 miles on 29th May as part of Ride London to raise money for Justice & Care. They're a great charity who work to help rescue victims of slavery and human trafficking.

Story

There are an estimated 40 million people living in slavery worldwide - at least 100,000 in the UK alone. Modern slavery is the fastest growing crime in the world.

I want to help, which is why I'm taking part in RideLondon 2022 in support of Justice & Care, an award-winning anti-slavery charity that is bringing freedom to those living in the grip of slavery and empowering them to rebuild their lives.

Justice & Care support victims like Helena*, who was trafficked to the UK into sexual exploitation. She was moved between brothels across numerous cities for nearly three years and forced to work without a break day after day. After being rescued by the police, one of Justice & Care's Victim Navigators assisted Helena into safe accommodation, helped her to access trauma-informed counselling and supported her to provide critical evidence to the police, which then led to other victims being rescued.

Helena said: "You are the first person in a long time that has helped me believe something can be changed."

Everything you give will help the work of Justice & Care. Your contribution will help make a difference in their work in the UK, mainland Europe and Asia and will spur me on!

Together, let's give the gift of freedom.

Donate
  • £15 could pay for a simple hygiene pack for someone who has just been rescued from slavery in the UK
  • £50 could help provide access to therapeutic services, helping a survivor come to terms with their experience
  • £100 can help provide essential training to the police officers, prosecutors and the judiciary to help ensure those responsible for trafficking are brought to justice
