Helen Bamber Foundation

Helen Bamber Foundation

The Helen Bamber Foundation supports refugees and asylum seekers who've experienced extreme human cruelty, such as torture and human trafficking.

The Helen Bamber Foundation provides expert care and support for refugees and asylum seekers who have suffered extreme physical, sexual and psychological violence, abuse and exploitation. Most have been repeatedly and systematically victimised, sometimes for years.

As a result of their experiences, clients have multiple and complex needs including: psychological health conditions, severe physical injuries and medical conditions, extreme vulnerability to further exploitation, risk of further persecution, homelessness, destitution and intense loneliness.

After experiencing acts of extreme human cruelty, refugees and asylum seekers are marginalised and vulnerable when coming to the UK. The Helen Bamber Foundation provides an expert combination of health, legal and welfare support to address the complex needs and vulnerabilities of survivors and help them achieve sustained recovery and lead successful lives in the UK.

Our players are supporting the Helen Bamber Foundation with funding that will allow them to provide trauma focused therapy, legal protection, medical and welfare services to more than 840 refugees and asylum seekers every year.

You can help the Helen Bamber Foundation rebuild the lives of refugees and asylum seekers who have experienced human cruelty. For more information, visits their website www.helenbamber.org. To help support their work, sign up to play People's Postcode Lottery.
