Founded in 2005 by Helen Bamber OBE (1925-2014), the Helen Bamber Foundation is a pioneering Human Rights charity supporting refugees and asylum seekers who are the survivors of extreme human cruelty. The people we work with have been subjected to atrocities including state-sponsored torture, human trafficking, religious and political persecution, forced labour, sexual exploitation, gender-based and ‘honour-based’ violence.
We are dedicated to ensuring that the people we support are free and healthy (both physically and mentally), are safe, are protected from re-victimisation, detention and poverty, and have the ability and agency to integrate in and contribute to the communities around them.
