Our Services



HBF does not wait until survivors are counted in official statistics, or formally recognised for the violations they have suffered. We work ‘here and now’ to treat each person with dignity and help them with access to health care, legal advice and human rights. We adjust the care we give in accordance with changing circumstances and challenges clients face. We help our clients gradually establish a therapeutic relationship of trust, which can eventually enable them to form safe, restorative and stabilising relationships in the wider community. This is an intricate process, essential for survivors’ safety, well-being, and ability to re-build and move forward with their lives.

We offer survivors access to an individually tailored programme of specialist psychological care and physical rehabilitation activities alongside an advisory GP clinic, expert medico-legal documentation, safeguarding, welfare and housing support, creative arts and employability skills programmes.

We work to make sure clients feel the Foundation is a place of professionalism and community. We maintain a consistent, safe environment for people who may not have any other ‘safe place’ to go. We work to increase their ability to recall and articulate their experiences, find a creative way to come to terms with what has happened and navigate the complexities of everyday life in the future.

I find heroism in our clients. Despite all they have been through, they find the remnants of resilience and courage to face continuing adversity.” – Helen Bamber
