Unseen has been recognised through the work of CEO Andrew Wallis who has won the Influencer Award 2013 for the Directory of Social Change.
On the 7th November Unseen received a prestigious Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) award and a cash prize of £10,000 for its work dedicated to providing safety, hope and choice to survivors of human trafficking.
The annual CSJ awards programme recognizes organisations that “display innovation and effectiveness in addressing the root causes of poverty, turning lives around and reversing social breakdown.”
The award was sponsored by Marsh, a global leader in insurance broking and risk management. Jason Groves, Director of Communications International for Marsh said: “we are delighted that this award has gone to such a worthy winner. We look forward to working with the team at Unseen over the coming year on some of the important projects in which they are involved, reducing the risk of abuse of vulnerable adults and children.”

“It’s about the commodification of human lives…if we can be horrified by historical examples we should be horrified by present day ones as well, and want to act” - Gavin Davenport
Unseen is delighted to announce that Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales has given the charity a grant of £18,400 over two years towards our work with survivors of human trafficking.
The grant will be used to fund a Support Worker at our 24-hour safe-house. Support Workers are pivotal to providing the hands-on, day-to-day support survivors need. They help survivors decide what goals they want to achieve while they’re at the project, and help with activities such as computing, gardening or accessing support in the community.
The Home Secretary Theresa May has announced the Modern Day Slavery Act is to be introduced. The Centre for Social Justice report: 'It Happens Here', chaired by our CEO has directly led to this government initiative which is to be warmly welcomed.
To make a text donation, simply text SEEN24 and the amount you want to give to 70070 - For example, if you would like to donate £10 text SEEN24 10 to 70070.

- £40 could pay for one counselling session for a survivor.
