Adavu: Modern Slavery in the West Midlands

adavuFounded in 2011 as a project of the Birmingham Methodist District, Adavu offers the following:
  • Long term support to adult survivors of modern slavery making the transition into a life in the local community
  • Advocating justice in relation to the issue of Modern Slavery
  • Building partnerships to prevent and frustrate Modern Slavery
  • Raising awareness and understanding of Modern Slavery amongst voluntary, community and faith groups, and enabling effective responses to it

The Adavu Project supports adult survivors of modern slavery in the West Midlands to rebuild fulfilled lives of freedom and independence in the longer term, and now they're launching a newsletter!
