We exist to relentlessly pursue the freedom and restoration of lives torn apart by modern slavery, crime and violence, creating projects that break the cycle of vulnerability by supporting people on their journey towards recovery and independence.
Who We AreCity Hearts was founded in 2005 to support women in South Yorkshire with life controlling issues, including addiction and eating disorders. Shortly after, we began supporting survivors of modern slavery and have since expanded our support and reach throughout the UK.
What We DoWe offer a range of services from crisis safe houses to long-term support and employment programmes. Find out more below.
Who We SupportWe support hundreds of men, women and families every year. The people we care for are highly traumatised, having suffered terrible exploitation. We help survivors of modern slavery and those seeking a crime-free future integrate back into society and live independently.
We provide immediate and long-term support to survivors of modern slavery, meeting the physical and emotional needs of survivors and equipping them to live independently.
Working in partnership with South Yorkshire Police’s Violence Reduction Unit, Plan B involves experienced custody navigators from City Hearts engaging with individuals in custody from the point of arrest.
Our About Face programme works alongside people at risk of being involved in offending behaviour, providing one-to one support and signposting to other organisations. Forging Ahead is designed to provide permanent paid employment to individuals seeking a crime-free future
