OUR CHARITY APPEAL ON BBC RADIO 4

Tune in on Sunday 12 July 2015 for our Charity Appeal on BBC Radio 4

The appeal will air  on Sunday at 7:55am & 9:25pm (GMT) and the following Thursday 15:27 (GMT). You can also listen to the appeal online for one week from Sunday 12 July until Sunday 19 July. 

We are delighted to announce that Dinah Rose QC, human rights Barrister from Blackstone Chambers is our spokesperson for the appeal.

Listen to what Dinah has to say about our work

Dinah will tell the story of Maria, a victim of trafficking who was brought to the UK and forced into prostitution. Maria is one of the many victims of trafficking that come to us for help because they have been subject to unfair and incorrect decision-making by the authorities.

 
Trafficking is a form of modern day slavery. Victims are brought to the UK, held against their will and forced to work. Official numbers estimate there are 2.4 million victims of trafficking globally.

Of this number, 30% of victims are trafficked for sexual exploitation. Through early legal intervention, providing free legal advice and engaging in policy work on the Modern Slavery Act, we hope to ensure that victims of trafficking receive the protection and support to which they are entitled. 

By supporting our charity appeal you will help us raise much needed funds so we can continue providing free legal advice and making sure that vulnerable people are protected by European law. So please tune in on Sunday 12 July or donate online.
