The Snowdrop Project is a dynamic and rapidly growing charity that uniquely specialises in assisting in the after-care of adults who have been rescued from trafficking. It is the first charity in the UK to specialise in long-term assistance and has been recognised for its contribution through awards, informing policy development and writing research in this area. It was previously a volunteer project but became a registered charity in October 2014. Since then the charity has grown from providing support to 12 survivors a year to 124 and continues to grow.
Snowdrop’s mission is to empower survivors of human trafficking to live lives no longer defined by their past and reduce the risk for those vulnerable to this crime. We are committed to creating, implementing and promoting models of best practice toward whole-person centred, multi-agency service provision, nationally and internationally.
We provide direct support to survivors through advocacy, counselling, community activities, a house renovation service and employment and education pathways. To further the knowledge and practice in the field, we provide training, consultation and awareness raising and support the movement of new policies and legislation that would improve the rights of survivors in the UK.
