    Izzy’s Promise is a charity organisation based in Dundee, Scotland (UK). We offer a free confidential support service for men and women ritual abuse survivors, aimed at relieving mental and physical distress of people who have suffered organised or ritual abuse. We also conduct research into causes of ritual abuse and ways of preventing it, and we offer training to other agencies, on ritual abuse and how to help survivors. We have been involved in supporting abuse survivors of trafficking and those who have been trafficked by use of rituals such as voodoo and ju-ju mostly from Africa and the Caribbean and ritual abuse among asylum seekers and refugees. We are also very much involved in addressing and supporting survivors of abuse resulting from FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), forced marriage and honour killings, and child trafficking.
