Room to Heal is a specialist charity working therapeutically with people who have survived torture, trafficking and other severe human rights violations. We provide an integrative programme of group therapy, social activities, and practical casework assistance. At the heart of our work lies the cultivation of a non-residential therapeutic community through which our members re-establish trust and belonging, and start to build meaningful lives in exile.
Room to Heal is staffed by a team of committed individuals, who work hard but also recognise that a friendly, nurturing environment is crucial for all of our well-being. By joining Room to Heal you would also become a part of a small, close-knit, multi-cultural and inspiring community and be able to see first-hand the positive changes that your work enables in the lives of torture survivors.

This may include help accessing housing, welfare benefits, asylum support, destitution and financial support, or help to access good immigration and asylum legal support. You will work closely with the therapists running the Mothers’ Group and the Community Manager, who will oversee the project.
