Aims

We aim to enable people who have experienced torture and human rights abuses to heal from their traumatic experiences, find renewed meaning in life, and begin to integrate into the UK. We achieve this through the provision and maintenance of a supportive, therapeutic community, whereby we:

  • Address traumatic experiences and symptoms via support groups, individual counselling and physical therapies;
  • Enable people to find renewed meaning and enjoyment in life through a range of social activities;
  • Help people to navigate the stress and complexity of the asylum process;
  • Provide holistic casework support to members helping them to address practical problems they face;
  • Support people in accessing education and preparing for future employment;
  • Create forums which allow members to interact with local communities;
  • Raise awareness of the issues facing migrants and survivors of torture amongst the wider public and policy makers.

Your money could fund a therapist to help members recover from severe trauma, help to pay for healing programmes such as the storytelling project, or cover travel expenses for members to get to a retreat. We also need general funds for staff wages and running costs such as office rental and telephone. Donations through JustGiving […]
