Long-term support for women affected by modern slavery in the community
The Moving On Project reaches out to women affected by modern slavery in the community, providing tailored one-to-one support to those who might not otherwise have access to such services. We aim to help women reduce their vulnerability to abuse, violence and exploitation, and move on positively with their lives.
We also help women survivors pursue judicial outcomes against their perpetrators, supporting them throughout the legal process.

How we help
Our work is tailored to meet each client’s individual needs.
We offer a wide variety of support, including:
- Casework and befriending: conducting needs assessment and support plans to meet the needs and aspirations of each individual
- Physical and mental wellbeing: helping women to access counselling and signposting to appropriate health services for support with complex mental and physical health problems
- Education and employment: helping women access education, training and employment courses and community volunteering opportunities
- Community integration: running monthly activity classes and drop-in sessions and helping women participate in community activities
- Access to justice: supporting women throughout the process and conducting legally admissible interviews
- Independent living: helping women to understand their rights and entitlements and empowering them to advocate for themselves
Who can use the outreach service?
The Moving On Project is available to women who have been affected by modern slavery, living within the community. This includes:
- Women leaving safe-house accommodation with a positive or negative conclusive grounds decision
- Women who have come to the end of statutory support and require longer-term support within the community
- Women living in the community who have chosen not to enter into the National Referral Mechanism or who have been through the process and are now at risk of re-exploitation
- Women who are vulnerable to violence, abuse and exploitation
If you are working with a survivor who would benefit from our Moving On Project, please do get in touch.
The project is available to women living in Wiltshire, London, Hampshire, Kent, Manchester, Liverpool & North Cheshire and West Midlands.
