Who we are

Hope for Justice is a charity working to bring an end to modern slavery and human trafficking, and to protect the human rights of victims and survivors.


Our multi-disciplinary model is based on four pillars: preventing exploitation; rescuing victims; restoring lives; and reforming society.


Hope for Justice is a charity working on the frontlines of the fight against human trafficking and modern slavery

Founded in the UK in 2008, Hope for Justice is now an international charity working across five continents. We help victims and survivors directly and also bring about long-term change through our work with governments, law enforcement, the business community and the general public. Find out more about our four pillars of work and our model at our What we do page.

Our wholly owned social enterprise, Slave-Free Alliance, provides services to other organisations that wish to protect their own operations and supply chains from modern slavery.

Hope for Justice's vision is to live in a world free from slavery, and every step of the journey towards achieving this ambition is empowered by a global movement of supporters, campaigners, donors, fundraisers and freedom-bringers.

“I’m privileged to have been given the opportunity to lead our amazing charity that is changing lives for the better each and every day. We have great ambitions to reach even more countries with our shared vision to change lives and end slavery. I know that I am blessed with exceptional colleagues in every single role and location in which Hope for Justice operates with the commitment and capability to reach our goal together.”

Our History

Hope for Justice began in the UK in 2008 and other groups and charities that have since become part of our organisation have histories stretching back even longer. We are proud that our heritage is shared with those who have joined together with us, including Natalie Grant's anti-trafficking organization, Abolition International (formerly The Home Foundation); Transitions Global in Cambodia; Retrak in Uganda and Ethiopia; Break the Cycle 200 in the USA; For Freedom in Norway; Lily Pad Haven in the USA; and No More Traffik in Northern Ireland. All are now part of Hope for Justice.
