Meet our people

Freedom from Torture is dedicated to support survivors of torture to heal, feel safe and strong again.

Many of the people we support are seeking sanctuary and placed in accommodation around the UK.

To meet their needs, we have centres in Birmingham, Glasgow, London, Manchester and Newcastle

Survivors of torture are at the heart of our work. Supporting survivors to recover their agency and participate actively in society is a key objective of therapy and everything else we do. Torture survivors do not simply inform but also co-design, deliver and evaluate our strategy, services and advocacy. We also support the work of the survivor-led activist network Survivors Speak OUT and creative writing group Write to Life

Our work depends on the expertise and dedication of more than 30 volunteers as well as almost 200 paid and part-time staff. Our headquarters are based in our purpose-built London treatment centre.

Our clinicians work with survivors to rebuild their physical and mental health. Our doctors document evidence of torture. And our lawyers and welfare advisors help survivors with their asylum cases.

And if you'd like to work for us, keep an eye on our vacancies, or sign up for email updates at the bottom of this page to receive news from us regularly.

Therapy is the flower of this organisation. It is a way of unlocking people's power that torturers tried to take away.
