Connecting for Christmas

As we look forward to 2022 with optimism, we want the young trafficking survivors we support to enjoy a time of year which can be difficult; being away from home, without their family and with many things in their lives being uncertain. Their voices are important to us, and we want them to be heard.

The young survivors of trafficking supported by Love146 come from a variety of difficult circumstances and been exploited and abused in different ways. Like us, young people with lived experiences of these issues are sometimes highly motivated to change things. They are determined to make sure no-one else has to go through what they did, and they want to be able to connect with others, learn and make informed decisions about their lives. Sadly, many don't have the knowledge or means to do so.


With your support, our work going forward will harness the creativity and energy of young survivors, driven by the urgency of the experiences that they have endured. Through a mix of face-to-face support, training and gifts to empower, we will not only help them to thrive as individuals and to lead independent and fulfilling lives, but also to support them in building their confidence and skills; to be agents of change. In part, through the power of digital to mobilise young survivors.

  • 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.
