The Medaille Trust is a charity founded by groups of Religious congregations in 2006 to work against the evils of human trafficking congregations in response to the plight of thousands of people who are being trafficked into the UK each year.
The Trust has been a significant provider of support and safe house provision for the victims of human trafficking since then and continues to deliver outstanding care ten years on.
The primary mission of The Medaille Trust is the empowerment of women, men and children, who have been freed from the human-trafficking and the modern day slavery industry in the UK, enabling them to regain their dignity and self-worth. We do this by providing safe housing and offering opportunities for physical and psychological healing, rehabilitation and protection to the victims in our care.
Since 2006 the Trust continues to grow and meet the needs of the increasing number of victims identified in the UK. Now, 10 years on The Medaille Trust operate from 8 safe houses offering a total of 75 bed spaces to women, men and children. Our current range of safe house provision offers 4 dedicated women’s houses, 3 male houses and 1 specialist family centre.
With our range of safe houses located across the country the trust can offer a warm and safe home with a loving team of staff to assist with the 1st stage of the victim’s recovery.
