End slavery. Change lives.

What we do

Hope for Justice runs anti-trafficking projects all over the world, working directly with victims and survivors. Our community initiatives help to prevent modern slavery happening in the first place.

 



Hope for Justice exists to bring an end to modern slavery by preventing exploitation, rescuing victims, restoring lives, and reforming society.

WORLD-CLASS SPECIALISTS

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 approach to
ending slavery.

01

Preventing
Exploitation

Through education and community empowerment, we help families and vulnerable people protect themselves against traffickers and the deceptive methods they use to control others.

02

Rescuing
Victims

Our investigators and outreach teams work with law enforcement and other agencies to identify victims of modern slavery, build bridges of trust with them and get them safely out of exploitation.

03

Restoring
Lives

We provide world-class survivor aftercare, both residential and non-residential. Our legal advocacy and support ensures needs are met and gives the best chance for justice to be done.

04

Reforming
Society

We train others on the front line – police, healthcare workers, charities and many more – to spot the signs of modern slavery and to respond effectively. We work with governments and businesses to make change happen.

Hope for Justice offers specialist socio-legal independent advocacy to survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking through our Independent Modern Slavery Advocate™ (IMSA) model. This model recognises that every survivor is an individual and that their journey to a life of dignity and freedom is unique. Via the IMSA Model Development project, we are collaboratively working with other organisations to achieve a national, standardised model of independent advocacy for adult survivors throughout the UK. Our UK Policy and Research team draw on evidence from our programme delivery and work with MPs, police, local authorities, academics and other actors to help bring about systemic developments within the UK response to modern slavery and human trafficking. Our Training team, covering Great Britain and Northern Ireland, offer accredited training to those who may come into contact with victims and survivors, via short basic awareness training as well as longer, in-depth courses on modern slavery for practitioners and professionals, either instructor-led or in your own time via our Learning Academy. The UK is also the location of our global head office and support functions for the charity, as well as Slave-Free Alliance.

Uganda

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.

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.
