Adavu Aftercare Support for Adult Survivors of Modern Slavery Launched

Adavu, a Birmingham Methodist District Project, have launched a new Aftercare Support Project for adult survivors of modern slavery in the West Midlands. This project, funded by the Lloyds Foundation, enables Adavu to offer tailored long term support to adult survivors. Adavu Director, Deacon Kerry Scarlett, says

‘Government funded aftercare provides a minimum of 45 days accommodation and support for recognised victims of modern slavery. Many moving on from this support struggle to make the transition into life in an unfamiliar local community, and there are very few dedicated aftercare services across the country. There are also a significant number of adult survivors who do not access the government funded support for a variety of reasons; they too often fall between the gaps and struggle to find the right assistance.’

They are looking for volunteer Befrienders to support their clients.
