Charity information

Helen Bamber Foundation

Over the past five years, we've treated over 3,500 vulnerable men, women and children. Survivors have experienced many forms of torture - from human trafficking to ethnic cleansing, domestic violence to female genital mutilation.

Our dedicated team treats clients in our central London centre. We are ready with a warm welcome and cups of tea. We offer survivors therapy, health checks, legal advocacy, and support.

Founded 2005

  • Mission statement

    The Helen Bamber Foundation was established in 2005 by Helen Bamber OBE and Dr. Michael Korzinski, whose work with survivors of gross human rights violations spans over sixty years, beginning with the rehabilitation of holocaust survivors in the former concentration camp of Bergen-Belsen.

    Through our direct clinical work with asylum seekers and refugees, we have developed an in-depth understanding of the impact that images and experiences of catastrophic violence and loss have had upon their lives and the assistance they require to recover.

  • Aims

    Helen Bamber Foundation aims to:

    • To raise awareness in the general public, schools, and governments about the issues we are working with and lobby for policy change.
    • To provide healthcare rehabilitation for survivors of trafficking and torture.
    • To provide legal advocacy for our clients in the UK courts through expert opinion in medio-legal reports and signposting to appropriate legal representation.
