‘Their Voice’ was started in 2015 by a social worker volunteering in a safe house for families who had been rescued from human trafficking and modern day slavery.
Coming alongside these women, we could see the need for them to feel valued and supported.
We started to make our gift-wrapped baskets of essential toiletries and these were left in the safe house bedrooms together with a hand-written card of welcome and encouragement.
We identified the basic practical necessities for birth and motherhood for these women, who were heavily pregnant and recently rescued from sexual exploitation. Hence a hospital bag and a gift-wrapped baby basket of essentials was provided.
In addition, we are now provide children’s packs. This consists of a rucksack filled with age related toys, books and stationery. These are given to every child who arrives at the safe house.
Our work has expanded over time and we use case workers to support many families in the community.
‘Their Voice’ is an organisation founded on care and compassion for those who have suffered human trafficking and modern slavery.
We passionately believe in the dignity and worth of every individual and provide essential practical gifts which are not provided through other sources.
We are working in partnership with other agencies and NGOs (non-government organisations), to raise awareness of the different forms of modern slavery.
We are avidly standing by those who are vulnerable in our society to allow their voice to be heard and help them to have some of their needs met.
