Hope for Justice
Hope for Justice exists to bring an end to modern slavery both in the UK and abroad.
The work around the world is split into four core strands:
PREVENTING EXPLOITATION: Outreach teams, Self-Help Groups and community education initiatives empower people to protect themselves and their families from predatory traffickers and their recruiters.
RESCUING VICTIMS: Investigators work closely with police and other agencies to identify victims of modern slavery, build bridges of trust with them and remove them from exploitation.
RESTORING LIVES: The charity’s multi-disciplinary advocacy team provide victim-centred support, including help to access housing, benefits, employment, mental health support and legal assistance. They support survivors through the criminal and civil justice processes to ensure they receive restitution. In Cambodia and Africa, Hope for Justice runs aftercare residential and educational facilities, plus extensive outreach and reintegration programmes.
REFORMING SOCIETY: Hope for Justice trains frontline professionals – including police, NHS, homeless shelter staff, NGOs, community groups and many others – to spot the signs of modern slavery and to respond effectively. They also seek policy change through governments and the media. Via Slave-Free Alliance, help businesses protect their operations and supply chains, and encourage businesses to improve their practices.
Here are some ways that you can get more involved:
Please pray for:
The advocacy and hubs teams – that God will give them success as they identify, rescue and advocate for victims of modern slavery.
The team in Slave Free Alliance and their work. That God would give them favour with all businesses including global businesses to address slavery in their supply chains.
Policymakers to pass laws that benefit victims, to set up and fund initiatives that address issues of trafficking.
