About Freedom from Torture
Freedom from Torture is dedicated to healing and protecting torture survivors.
We were founded on Christmas Eve 1985 as the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture by Helen Bamber and Amnesty International volunteers. For over 30 years, through our services, we have been helping survivors overcome their torture and live better, happier lives.
We provide specialist psychological therapy to help asylum seekers and refugees who have survived torture recover and rebuild their lives in the UK. And we provide training for professionals working with torture survivors.
With survivors, we campaign for change in the UK and across the world. Together, we raise awareness and influence decision-makers about torture and its impact.
