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.
