Survivor Support Service
The Salvation Army delivers a Survivor Support Service called CONNECT*.
The CONNECT programme works alongside Governmental (statutory) and Non-Governmental services by providing additional practical and holistic support to survivors of modern slavery.
We run a weekly drop-in, across numerous cities providing activities and educational workshops; access to local services and practical support with financial, educational and housing issues.
Additionally, survivors can participate in a 12-month mentoring programme which provides practical support and guidance to help individuals reach their goals.
The Survivor Support Service gives individuals continuity of support as they move towards recovery and independence. Through CONNECT, we support them on their journey to sustained freedom.
CONNECT supports adult survivors with a positive reasonable grounds or positive conclusive grounds decision and can be referred by any professional (case worker, GP etc).
