The Adavu Project is based in Birmingham but we take referrals from across the West Midlands Police area for our after-care service. They support adult survivors of modern slavery (men and women) within the West Midlands. Our main area of work is to support men and women who have left the National Referral Mechanism (NRM), usually with a positive Conclusive Grounds decision.

Please note that Adavu does not investigate or ‘rescue’ people.

Adavu offers the following:

  • Long term support to adult survivors of modern slavery making the transition into a life in the local community. Adavu offers a package of integrated and ongoing support to help survivors to take the next steps towards developing life skills, accessing benefits, training, education, and employment as well as access to trauma and therapeutic provision.
  • Advocating justice in relation to the issue of Modern Slavery
  • Building partnerships to prevent and frustrate Modern Slavery
  • Raising awareness and understanding of Modern Slavery amongst voluntary, community and faith groups, and enabling effective responses to it
