  • “For trafficked children, healing is a journey that is only just beginning with rescue from exploitation. We understand our purpose to partner with such an important organisation, every contribution is an enabler for Love146 UK to continue its extraordinary work in saving the lives of children.”

    — Geoff-Hudson Searle at IBEM

Situation

National figures continue to show that the numbers of child victims of trafficking found across the UK are growing. These young people are at risk of offending, becoming criminalised, experiencing severe forms of exploitation, and homelessness or living in insecure housing. Minh for example was living in Vietnam with his family when someone approached him, promising him a better life in the UK. Little did Minh know that his “better life” would mean being locked up in a cannabis farm.

Solution

We will continue to deliver our well-established Survivor Care Programme, where we provide a range of safe accommodation and expert support for young people identified as victims of trafficking. The help we provide them and their carers aims to prevent young people returning to the control of their traffickers, to build resilience and to enable them to live happy and fulfilled lives. We provide this support and advocate on their behalf for as long as it takes.
