The Human Trafficking Foundation’s Trafficking Survivor Emergency Support Fund is available to help victims of human trafficking and modern slavery with small one-off grants to meet their immediate needs when no other sources of funding are available.
HTF is not in a position to administer the distribution and spending of the grant, and therefore works with organisations providing other forms of support and advice to survivors who apply on their behalf. We are unable to make grants directly to survivors. We ask that the support worker complete the Application Form and, if granted, the funding will be transferred to the support organisation’s bank account to then be administered. Please provide details of what effort has been made to secure funding from other sources.
If your client is currently receiving support under the NRM Care Contract we request that an application is first made to The Salvation Army’s Victim Care Fund. We are not able to provide grants for needs which can be met by the Salvation Army other than in exceptional circumstances.
We would not usually make a grant above £200.
Application form and guidelines available here.
