Men's Safehouse

Unseen has developed a new model of 24/7 care and support for male survivors of trafficking and slavery.

Up until now, the UK has not had an effective support mechanism for the most vulnerable male survivors. Unlike women, who have been able to access 24/7 staffed support in a safehouse environment, men have only had the option of supported housing with occasional floating support. Now, however, MAP will provide services and support as prescribed under ECAT (Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings) to equip male survivors with the resilience and self-esteem needed to safely recover, and reduce their risk of re-exploitation. Male or female, every survivor of trafficking and slavery deserves safety, hope and choice.

From Spring 2016, MAP is able to provide accommodation and support to a survivor for the duration of the National Referral Mechanism reflection period of up to 45 days.

MAP allows survivors to access a range of services including:

  • Medical care and treatment
  • Counselling
  • Legal advice and assistance
  • Holistic therapy sessions
  • Education
  • Financial assistance
  • Immigration advice
  • Assistance to return home or to reside in the UK
