‘I am what I am today because of Helen Bamber Foundation.’ – Anita, survivor.
Making your money count for something
Most of our clients are destitute, vulnerable and have little recourse to public services or financial assistance. Your monthly donation contributes to a survivor’s welfare, which translates into safety, health and a road to recovery.
Why should you support us?
We receive no government funding. The therapy we provide is free. This includes a one-hour session with an expert clinician, support from our admin team, use of our library and access to an interpreter. Our clients need consistency, stability and reassurance that we will always be here for them. A one-off donation is great; a regular standing order enables us to plan for the future.

How will we use your donation?
It costs us £1600 per year to support one of our clients. That’s just £133 per month. Here’s how your donation might be spent:
In Mind & Body £7.50 allows a client to attend a yoga class with our specialised therapies helping them re-engage, and erase past experiences.
In Advocacy £10 enables us to recruit an advocacy volunteer who will accompany clients to appointments and act as spokesperson for them.
In Education £60 covers a Clinical Director’s talk to decision-makers, students and professionals to engage them with our work, communicating our expertise to new audiences.
In Healthcare £100 helps pay for Clinical Sessions with specially trained doctors who can provide medical treatment for victims of torture.
Any amount, whether big or small, will make a real difference. Thank you.
