Story

There are an estimated 40 million people living in slavery worldwide - at least 100,000 in the UK alone.

At Justice & Care, we are committed to doing all we can to fight this horrific crime and bring freedom to those living in the grip of slavery.

With this in mind, this September, the J&C team are taking on a Tough Mudder challenge to raise essential funds for our programmes. Our target is to raise £3,000 to support three survivors of slavery in the UK for a year. This challenge will be tough but it doesn't even begin to compare to the challenges brave survivors face daily to restore their lives.

Your support will help victims like Helena*, who was trafficked to the UK into sexual exploitation. She was moved between brothels across the country for nearly three years and forced to work without a break day after day. After being rescued by the police, one of our 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."

Your contribution will make such a difference to the lives of survivors we are supporting and will spur me on!

Together we can 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
