British Red Cross

British Red Cross - Anti-Trafficking Support

Last updated 18/05/24

"The British Red Cross might be able to help people who have been: • deceived about work conditions • threatened and forced to work or carry out activities they don’t want to do • forced to work to pay off a large debt • treated badly by others and in ways they did not want to be treated. People might still be in exploitation and not ready to leave; have recently left exploitation; or have left a while ago. Some people don’t think of themselves as trafficked people. Some don’t wish to enter the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) and prefer to explore their options. Regardless of what stage they are at, we aim to help people make an informed, safe decision. Survivors of trafficking and exploitation are very vulnerable and need help within the first few days of asking for it. They can get immediate help and longer-term support from a range of Red Cross services. We have specialist anti-trafficking officers in London, the north-west and the east Midlands. They can give more complex support to people and are also able to help other frontline workers. People who are trafficked are often separated from their families, and sometimes unable to find them. We can help them look for their loved ones and, if eligible, be reunited with them. Treating trafficked people with respect, kindness and dignity, we help them understand all their options. They can then make informed decisions about what to do next. We focus on helping people understand all the possible options they have so they can make informed decisions on what to do next. We believe that if people are given enough time, the right information and support, they can make their own choices about their next steps. We never tell people what they should do, such as leave exploitation or enter the National Referral Mechanism. Choices must be made by the trafficked person when they are ready to make them. Our support is usually time limited – mostly ranging from between three and four days or six to twelve weeks. But we offer our services for as long as people need them. Our longer-term support programme is offered for months or years. Ultimately, we want trafficked people to be independent again and we will support them to get there. We also acknowledge that people’s need for help will change over time and anyone may come back to us for further support when necessary."

Cascade Family Essentials

Doulas Without Borders

Doulas Without Borders

Last updated 18/05/24

At Doulas Without Borders, our UK-wide network of voluntary doulas provides women and birthing people who have experienced trauma and are in financial hardship with the companionship, physical, emotional and educational support needed during pregnancy, birth and early parenthood. Doulas do not offer medical advice or apply clinical measures, but do offer a wealth of knowledge about birth. We help people to have a positive experience by providing information, support, and encouragement—without judgment. Doulas are there to support the whole family unit, when appropriate. We do not attempt to mirror the role of any other supporter, but to empower all towards a positive outcome. Our presence can help alleviate isolation during pregnancy and labour and assist in early parenting settling in. Having a more positive experience of pregnancy and birth contributes to the potential for bonding and attachment between parent and baby. Building resilience during this time is best achieved through a strong bond with the mother, which provides baby with a crucial step towards a healthy and balanced adult life. We accept referrals on behalf of people from 6 months of pregnancy or within the first 6 weeks of the postnatal period, who are in isolation, or unsupported, in disadvantage and in financial hardship*. ​Our Doula services are available to any woman/person who is experiencing financial hardship* and is:​ At affect of domestic / intimate partner violence and / or sexual violence Experiencing homelessness A survivor / victim of human trafficking Under 20 years old and unsupported A survivor / victim of rape With refugee / recent asylum seeking status At least one of the above and experiencing or preparing for baby loss. Our Doula services are available to any woman/person who is experiencing financial by loss. *We define financial hardship as without funds beyond basic accommodation and living expenses. How it Works ​Step 1: Referral Our service works through a referral system. Women/people should ask a health or social care professional, a community member who can vouch for them, or a support worker to fill out the referral form on their behalf. We accept referrals for women and people during pregnancy or within the first 6 weeks of the postnatal period. We can only offer support if the person is in extreme financial hardship,which we define as without funds beyond accommodation and food. For those who are experiencing a more borderline financial hardship, we suggest women apply for a low cost Doula via Doula UK. Once we have received your referral form, we will consult our Doulas Without Borders Directory to find a match based on your geographical location and specific needs of your nominee. We tend to create a team of supporters around each client, rather than just one Doula. We then assign a lead Doula based on experience and availability and the whole team is also supported by one of our Community Elders. We have a highly skilled team of specialist Consultants who are also available for each team, on request.
