Our vision is a world free from torture.
We know that is not going to happen overnight, so we’re launching a new strategy from 2022-2025 to create a more compassionate world - and we want you to be part of it.
We oppose torture fiercely and stand with survivors in their recovery. Their resilience is a source of constant inspiration.
Compassion: Understanding the suffering, acting together to end it
Empowerment: Unlocking strength, moving from passive to active
Resolve: Never giving up, even in the hardest times
Hope: Belief in the potential for making change
Working alonside torture survivors, supporters and partners, we've designed our most ambitious strategy yet. Together, we’ve developed a pioneering new approach that ensures people who have lived through both torture and the UK’s harsh asylum system are at the heart of creating a world free from torture.
With your help, we’re also aiming to double the number of people who receive our rehabilitation therapies - and provide twice as many survivors with the expert clinical reports they need to support their asylum claims.
The strategy includes our plan for:
- Changing lives by helping more survivors of torture than ever via our ground-breaking clinical services
- Changing the system by building broad support for the torture ban and Britain as a country of sanctuary for survivors, and growing the movement of people taking action to defend these principles
- Survivors leading the change by taking the lead and shaping all areas of our work
- Changing ourselves to become more agile and creative, better reflect the communities we serve, and be on track to become a carbon neutral organisation by 2030
