NEW LOCAL ACTIVIST GROUP
Brighton & Hove Freedom from Torture Supporters Group meet regularly to organise local events fundraising for Freedom for Torture and raising awareness of its work and issues around torture in general. We have organised a musical evening, a singing ‘busk’ in Brighton’s Open Market and are planning more events, from tea-and-cake get-togethers to film nights and discussions.
Freedom from Torture is the only UK-based organisation providing specialist services to help torture survivors rebuild their lives. These range from medical assessments in support of survivors’ asylum claims to psychotherapy and counselling, and therapeutic activities such as gardening, music, creative writing and cookery. FfT runs five therapeutic centres – London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Newcastle – and operates as a centre for training and sharing of expertise in supporting torture survivors.
