Newly awarded grants

Three grants were approved and awarded at the Trustee Board meeting held on the 1st December 2021.

Beyond the Streets

£190,428 over two years

Beyond the Streets is a UK charity working to end sexual exploitation by creating routes out through working directly with women.  Their vision is to see a world where people are free from sexual exploitation, and where those in prostitution have the option to pursue genuine alternatives, free from constraints such as poverty, drug dependency, and abuses of vulnerability.  Beyond the Streets works on behalf of women who are experiencing sexual exploitation through a number of projects which provide holistic and specialist support for women involved in prostitution.

This grant will enable Beyond the Streets to address gaps in the support and services women sex workers experience by driving forward systemic change which creates a multi-agency approach to providing support for women and improving outcomes.

Anti-Slavery International

£204,000 over two years

People end up trapped in modern slavery because they are vulnerable to being tricked, trapped and exploited, often as a result of poverty and exclusion. Political, economic and social systems that disadvantage some groups in society push people into taking risky decisions in search of opportunities to provide for their families. At the same time people may not have access to the sort of help and support that we take for granted – such as going to the police for help.  Anti-Slavery International look at those systems, those root causes, and do everything they can to try and re-balance them to provide people at-risk from slavery with an opportunity to build sustainable futures.

This grant will help Anti-Slavery International to respond to Covid-19 and the climate change in their response to preventing slavery by building the capacity of their partners which will mitigate against the risk of further vulnerability and increasing resilience..
