Community hubs

The Salvation Army has developed community–based support which provides survivors of modern slavery with a link to their local community, mentoring and assistance in accessing the range of available support they may need.

The support programme offers a drop-in style service to help survivors engage with their local community and access legal services, integrate socially and develop their skills and confidence to thrive in society. It focuses on supporting people who are approaching the end of their time supported through the Government contract within the National Referral Mechanism and those who are moving on imminently, as well as people who are now living independently.

This gives survivors continuity of support as they move towards recovery and independence even when there is no provision for statutory support.

The establishment of the first pilot sites of the ‘Modern Slavery Hubs’ programme was made possible through the reinvestment of Salvation Army funds by joint agreement with the Home Office. This programme is based on the Sustainable Freedom Support Structure™ created by Juliana Semione in collaboration with The Salvation Army.
