We are the home of innovative projects such as UK Says No More, Safe Spaces and the Bright Sky app, and Art is Freedom. These initiatives aim to raise awareness, provide support and empower survivors of domestic abuse and modern slavery.

We have over 750 employees and 600 volunteers who build honest and respectful relationships with our service users. We collaborate and work with them to support and encourage them to lead their own recovery process. We are proud of our staff and inspired by the resilience of the people we serve.
