Freedom from Torture (the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture) is the only national charity in the UK solely dedicated to treating men, women and children who have survived the atrocities of torture and organised violence.
Freedom from Torture is a human rights organisation that exists to enable survivors of torture and organised violence to engage in a healing process to assert their own human dignity and worth. Our concern for the health and well-being of torture survivors and their families is directed towards providing medical and social care, practical assistance, and psychological and physical therapy. It is also our mission to raise public awareness about torture and its consequences.
We have a network of national centres helping survivors of torture in the UK including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow. Thanks to the generous support of funders, a new presence has started in Yorkshire and Humberside.
