More support for human trafficking survivors in Sheffield

Have your say

A new charity has been set up in Sheffield to provide long-term assitance to human trafficking survivors.

The Snowdrop Project helps human trafficking survivors to take steps to come to terms with their ordeal and move forward.

It grew out of work done by Sheffield-based Lara Bundock and Rachel Medina, in response to growing concern around the lack of long-term support available.

Lara Bundock said: “Survivors of human trafficking suffer unbelievable physical and psychological trauma from which some may never fully recover, but sadly government support on this matter is only available for up to 45 days.”

Sheffield-based legal experts from Irwin Mitchell solicitors helped the organisation to gain official charity status through the Charity Commission.
