Freedom from Torture is the only organisation in the UK dedicated solely to the treatment of survivors of torture.

The effects of torture continue long after someone has escaped their torturers; survivors often suffer from chronic pain, anxiety, flashbacks and an inability to trust.

We have five centres where we offer psychiatry, clinical psychology, psychotherapy, counselling, complementary therapies and support with housing and welfare. We also speak out alongside survivors to raise awareness and influence decision makers.

We are a registered charity, 95% of our resources come from voluntary donations.
