Rebuild East Midlands exists to empower and assist survivors of modern day slavery and human trafficking to overcome the barriers that they might face in starting a new life, free from slavery. We support individuals to fully access opportunities to embrace a hope filled future.
VICTIMS OF MODERN SLAVERY & HUMAN TRAFFICKING GLOBALLY
ARE FOUND OR
SUPPORTED TO FREEDOM
On average, victims are held for 23.4 months in their situation before escaping or being freed. (Global Estimates 2017)
"Only 1% of slaves in the world are discovered or found" (Luis De Baca, US State Dept. Ambassador, Global Trafficking Report 2014)
OF THOSE FOUND
RISK BEING RE-TRAFFICKED
"Up to 34% of victims of slavery are estimated to be re-trafficked"
Rebuild East Midlands started in 2017 in response to the increasing number of individuals identified as living in Derby who had experienced human trafficking and modern slavery, and were not receiving the support they needed to recover and rebuild their lives.
We are future focussed
Together with our staff, volunteers we want to be mindful of the past and how it impacts the present but we want to help people move forward by focussing on the future
We are consistent
As a long term support provider we want to be consistent in our approach to support and partnering with individuals
We promote empowerment
We work with individuals to redress the power imbalance that exploitation creates. We want to partner with those we work with to shape their own support, to develop resilience and support the choices and decisions they make themselves. We take a position of learning from those with lived experience to inform what we do.
We focus on the individual
Valuing every individual and their uniqueness, we seek to understand, respect and embrace the backgrounds and experiences of every individual.
We are flexible
We are constantly evolving, thinking creatively, seeing potential and embracing a flexible approach to all aspects of our work.
