Hope for Justice exists to bring an end to modern slavery by preventing exploitation, rescuing victims, restoring lives, and reforming society.
People make it possible
Hope for Justice does more than raise awareness. We act. We are investigators with years of law enforcement experience, we are multilingual outreach workers, we are accredited trainers, legal experts, social workers, therapists, nurses, policy specialists, campaigners and professionals. Hope for Justice is on the ground in the places that are worst affected by human trafficking and modern slavery, and our work will not stop until all are free.
Our global locations
Hope for Justice's USA locations are in Tennessee, Iowa, Florida, Colorado and North Carolina. We are expanding fast to bring our model to new states. In the USA, our licensed investigators help locate and rescue victims of trafficking. Our US Survivor Care Program is a safe place to live during recovery. We train thousands of professionals each year, and we work at the local, state and federal level to improve the response to human trafficking.
In Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Hope for Justice has a model built around Community Engagement Hubs that work directly with vulnerable individuals and communities. Specialist multilingual teams engage via outreach and investigation to help people out of exploitative situations. Our Advocacy team offers social and legal support to survivors, ensuring they get access to the services, compensation and justice to which they are entitled. Training teams ensure other professionals can respond effectively to modern slavery, while our policy and research teams engage with MPs, police, local authorities. Hope for Justice's global head office and support functions are based in Manchester, England. Our wholly owned social enterprise focused on businesses and supply chains, Slave-Free Alliance, is also based in Manchester.
We have three locations in Norway: Stavanger, Oslo and Bergen. Our expert teams work directly with victims and survivors of modern slavery and exploitation to get them the support they need. We engage with police, agencies and other charities to ensure the best outcomes possible, while campaigning for positive change and offering training.
Hope for Justice runs a number of anti-trafficking initiatives across Uganda. Many are focused on prevention and community-run economic empowerment, because family breakdown and poverty are leading risk factors for modern slavery. Outreach teams engage with the most vulnerable children, especially those living on the streets. Our Lighthouses offer a safe place for boys and girls who have experienced modern slavery or intense vulnerability to it, with shelter, trauma-informed care and counselling, medical interventions, education and play. The long-term goal is always reintegration to safe families. We also work to improve the overall nationwide response to human trafficking issues.
In Cambodia, Hope for Justice runs two main initiatives: our Lighthouse for girls and teenagers rescued from situations of modern slavery, including forced prostitution, forced marriage and labour exploitation. The Lighthouse offers a safe and caring place for the girls to recover from their experiences and get support (including education, life skills and vocational training) to help them adjust to a new life in freedom. For those about to rejoin their communities or live independently, our Stepping Stones project helps ensure they can get good-quality work and can flourish.
Hope for Justice runs anti-trafficking initiatives across Ethiopia, which is the country where we have the most staff and help the most people, particularly children. We run projects focused on prevention and community-run economic empowerment, because family breakdown and poverty are risk factors for modern slavery. Outreach teams engage with the most vulnerable children, especially those on the streets. Our Lighthouses offer a safe place for boys and girls who have experienced modern slavery or intense vulnerability to it, with shelter, trauma-informed care and counselling, medical interventions, education and play. The long-term goal is always reintegration to safe families. We also work to improve the overall nationwide response to human trafficking issues.
We recently launched our work in Australia, and we are beginning by focusing on engagement with the business community about modern slavery in supply chains and other aspects of their operations via our Slave-Free Alliance initiative. We are asking Australians from across the country to join us as we grow our projects and seek to scale up our anti-trafficking operations here.
