We work in partnership with a variety of exceptional organisations working together to achieve our key objectives.
Increasing public awareness
Communities are engaged to help build awareness of modern slavery across their wider networks and increase the level of public understanding.
Long Term Survivor support
More survivors are holistically supported to help regain independence and overcome their previous exploitation, for as long as they need.
Preventing modern slavery
Stakeholders, communities and individuals are equipped with the tools to better understand, identify and tackle the causes of modern slavery.
Long Term Survivor support: Hike for Freedom
TRIBE Hike for Freedom: Fitness and Wellness programme is a structured six-month programme of fitness and outdoor activities helping survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking to improve their well-being and regain their freedom through fitness and nature. By working with multiple project partners, the project also aims to increase cross-charity collaboration to enhance wider long term support for survivors of modern slavery.
In 2019, we conducted a pilot walking group with the Helen Bamber Foundation. Together, 15 women took part in the monthly training walks, culminating in the Hike For Freedom: Three Peaks Challenge. The project gave them the opportunity to rediscover their inner strength and recognise their capabilities.
“People have told me ‘you can’t do this’, ‘you can’t achieve this’, ‘you’re not this’, ‘you’re not that’, but after today, nobody will tell me ‘you can’t do this’ or ‘you can’t achieve this’. This has topped it all for me.” — Hike for Freedom Participant

Preventing modern slavery: A call to action
We are working in partnership with Themis Financial Crime Agency on a new research project, commissioned by the UK Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner. The 2020 report aims to increase awareness of the direct and indirect linkage of Financial Institutions with modern slavery and the role they have in preventing it; to drive cultural change and action at the most senior levels within the Financial Sector; and to provide practical recommendations which encourage businesses to adopt best practice in relation to modern slavery.
“Financial institutions have a key role to play in preventing modern slavery, a global trade whereby human beings are repeatedly sold for profit. This resource will empower businesses to understand the risks and identify practical measures to disrupt this devastating crime.” — Dame Sara Thornton Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner
