Anti-trafficking and modern slavery
Our anti-trafficking work takes place on an international scale. We have been protecting and caring for victims of modern slavery since The Salvation Army’s early beginnings in the 1880s, and since July 2011 we have delivered the UK government’s contract to manage support services for adult victims of modern slavery.
This includes financial, legal and medical support, a safe place to stay and access to counselling and educational opportunities when needed.
The Salvation Army has developed a mentoring programme which aims to support people on their journey from victim to survivor. Mentors help to model healthy community with a structured relationship, modelling how to establish goals, giving practical support, advice, signposting and helping to celebrate successes.
There are a number of ways in which we are supporting survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking, and in many of these programmes our specialist staff who deliver them are supported by volunteers.
The 3 areas of Volunteering that you could be a part of are:
- Working with survivors in our mentoring programme (for more information please contact ATMSMentoring@salvationarmy.org.uk
- Interviewing potential victims of trafficking (for more information please contact ATMSVolunteering@salvationarmy.org.uk
- Transporting victims of trafficking to a safe place (for more information please contact ATMSVolunteering@salvationarmy.org.uk
We are looking for people who are:
- Passionate about supporting people to move towards a positive future
- Able to keep confidences
- Good team players
- Willing to undertake a disclosure check and to receive Safeguarding and other relevant training
- In sympathy with the aims and objectives of The Salvation Army
