The Helen Bamber Foundation’s mission is to deliver and promote a compassionate response to survivors of torture or extreme human cruelty, and which recognises the complexity of their suffering and needs.
The Helen Bamber Foundation provides expert care and support for refugees and asylum seekers who have experienced extreme physical, sexual and psychological violence. Our clients have suffered various and often multiple atrocities including: state-sponsored torture, religious / political persecution, human trafficking, forced labour, sexual exploitation, gender-based and ‘honor-based’ violence. Many of our clients have been repeatedly victimised over months and years. Every year, we work with hundreds of survivors from all over the world, including men and women from Syria, Albania, Ghana, Eritrea, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and Vietnam.
