Beanstalk Global & Unseen Broadcast

Working towards a world without slavery - It’s a big aim and a big task, but the team at Unseen believe they can do it. By concentrating their efforts on three main areas - supporting, equipping and influencing - they can start to tackle the issue in a way that really works. Their specialist care is the first step in the fight against slavery. Through supporting survivors, their provision gives them a safe place to recover from trauma and rebuild their lives. Their practices are researched thoroughly, enabling them to identify the key issues surrounding slavery and exploitation, and equipping themselves and others with effective, targeted solutions.

They also recognise the importance of influencing the systems that keep slavery hidden. Tackling issues such as supply and demand are vital if we are going to eradicate slavery. They hope that one day their work is no longer needed. That by working in partnership with communities, business, governments and other organisations they can stamp out slavery for good. But while there are victims of trafficking, they want to be here to offer them the safety, hope and choice they deserve.
