Research & Policy

Research is essential to help support the Survivors of trafficking and torture. We do this research to make sure that all Survivors can benefit from our learning and expertise. Research leads to evidence. We are committed to finding the evidence that will then go on to change policy, the way people work and ultimately, the law. 

The Helen Bamber Foundation exists to support all Survivors. We know that only a small percentage of Survivors are getting the help they need. Many people are stuck in limbo, in hugely dangerous situations, and so our research creates evidence, which in turn, will help these people too. 

Everyone in the sector can use our evidence to help drive change and to support Survivors of trafficking and torture. The Helen Bamber Foundation’s expertise and evidence can be used by authorities and service providers to develop new policy and guidelines that directly help Survivors. 

  • Our clients' lived experience is at the very centre of our research, ensuring that their voice is heard and listened to so we can provide practical change.
  • Evidence based intervention works and we are constantly learning how to do better
  • Focussing on the gaps in services is of paramount importance to us.
