Our befriend scheme facilitates survivor connections to their local community so that they can get to know the local area and touch-base with our team in a non-pressurised environment. The interaction can range from helping with shopping to a coffee and a chat in the local park. This service is essential to community integration.
Befriending & Support Network
Counselling & Mental Wellbeing
We work with trained volunteers to help victims develop emotional skills, cope with life challenges and manage their triggers; this will enable them to function independently and socially. This can range from 1-1 counselling to art and music therapy.
Education & Employability
We work with careers advisors to help victims consider their future, opportunities and career path. We partner with organisations to provide essential skills-development for future employment and/or education in preparation for living independently, finding work and becoming self-sustaining.
We support survivors of modern slavery by sharing essential life skills that will help with confidence building, such as cooking classes and healthy eating habits.
Finance and budgeting skills are a core part of this service. We aim to teach survivors to manage their budget and learn about savings with the aim to one day a deposit for independent living in private accommodation.
Self-Discovery & Discovery Tools
A core part of independence is identity. Our programme integrates volunteer-led self-discovery sessions chosen by the victims. This can range from book-clubs to baking to gardening.
