All of us at Freedom from Torture are shocked and saddened by the terrorist attack that took place in Finsbury Park near our London centre last night.
Over two hundred supporters ate, drank and laughed at Freedom from Torture’s Great Street Feast on 14 June. The major fundraising event was held at BAFTA headquarters in central London. Early indications are that the final total for the evening will top £52,000.

However, the core of my work has remained the same – to develop strategic training and learning programmes to enable professionals to understand and support the needs of torture survivors in ways that are ethical, accessible and appropriate.

In the past few weeks Britain has witnessed some appalling terrorist atrocities. It is clear that action needs to be taken to stop such events ever happening.
