We successfully completed our first two pilot Day 46 Programmes in April 2016 with some encouraging feedback from the women we worked with.
Here’s some of what they said:
“I just opened up inside and I made discoveries about things in me”
“They gave me confidence in my future.”
“No matter where I go, I know I have experience and skills.”
“Sometimes you need someone in your life to see things you can’t see. They saw something good in me.”
Day 46 is designed to help survivors of trafficking navigate their next steps after their 45 days of statutory care. Together with organisations across London, we are collaborating to explore how we can really make a difference in the wellbeing, happiness and financial sustainability of survivors long term.
Through the Day 46 programme we are working directly with survivors of trafficking to help them build confidence, community and readiness for work.
Day 46 consists of 8 sessions which comprise of group workshops, 1:1 coaching and mentoring and additionally if deemed ready, a bespoke experience in a voluntary work placement, apprenticeship or training programme with an employer. This is a truly different kind of learning opportunity that we believe will bring real hope to survivors in the capital.
We will shortly be starting our next three programmes over the course of the summer and will keep you posted on how it’s going!
