Who we are

Our Mission

Medaille Trust’s mission is to provide refuge and freedom from modern slavery. We are the largest provider of supported safe house beds for victims of modern slavery in the UK. 

Our History 

Medaille Trust began when one lady – Sister Ann Teresa SSJA (now our life president) – said ‘something must be done’. She gathered a group of friends from different Religious congregations and together they started tackling the scourge of modern slavery. 

What started in 2006 with a house for women trafficked into prostitution quickly grew into a national network supporting all people trapped in modern slavery – women, men and families. 

Medaille Trust is now the largest provider of supported safe house beds for victims of modern slavery in the UK.

Our specialist teams support clients 24/7 on the road to restoration and independence.
