Sometimes the only option for victims of domestic violence or modern slavery is running away from the abuse they suffer. Unfortunately, not all survivors have relatives or friends in the UK to support them.
Sometimes, when people run away from abuse, they only have the clothes they are wearing, and while help from their local council’s housing department is available in finding accommodation, survivors need a safe place to stay and also need help in maintaining a basic standard of living. Therefore, we kindly ask your generosity in helping survivors of domestic abuse and modern slavery start again and build a new life free of exploitation and violence.
