Freedom from Torture – Covid-19 Torture Survivor Emergency Relief Fund


A micro grants scheme to help survivors of torture who are beyond our reach.

Following from our COVID-19 relief fund appeal, we have recognised the need to extend support to survivors of torture who we cannot currently reach.

We are therefore inviting small community-based organisations supporting survivors of torture during the pandemic to apply to us for a one-off small grant between £200 and £2000 from our COVID-19 Torture Survivor Emergency Relief Fund.

We are particularly keen to support survivors who tend to be underrepresented in Freedom from Torture’s current services.

These include (but are not limited to) survivors from LGBT backgrounds, women, single mothers and single fathers with young children, survivors from China and South East Asia, survivors from Eastern Europe, and older adult survivors.
