Freedom from Torture is the only organisation in the UK dedicated solely to the treatment of survivors of torture.

Torturers attempt to silence and break people. We help survivors to find their voices again and rebuild their lives in the safety of the UK.

Our team of dedicated professionals provide direct support to survivors including psychological therapy, physical health services, legal and welfare support, and expert medical reports for use in survivors' asylum claims. We also support other providers to deliver high quality rehabilitation services to survivors.

We campaign for national and global change, using evidence from our services and survivor voices to protect and promote survivors' rights and hold torturing states to account. We are proud to play a significant role in the global anti-torture movement. Survivors, active and empowered, are at the centre of all of our work.

None of this can happen without our vibrant community of supporters who help to create this change.

Thanks to the dedication of our staff and volunteers - as well as thousands of passionate supporters and funders - thousands of torture survivors have been able to rebuild their lives in incredibly difficult circumstances.

The Executive Assistant (EA) plays an essential role in supporting the Director of National Clinical Services to carry out her role efficiently and effectively, by providing comprehensive executive management support.
