Day 46 Programme

Survivors of trafficking and modern day slavery in the UK are eligible for 45 days of rest and reflection either in a safehouse or with supported social work care. *Recent changes in the governmental NRM system are being put in place – see here for more details.* 
However, many safehouse providers report concerns about the long term safety and reintegration of survivors of trafficking, with many fearing that high numbers of survivors are re-trafficked because they are still vulnerable to traffickers, homelessness and poverty.  The Day 46  Programme is a comprehensive programme comprising of workshops, a vocational voluntary placement, coaching and then accessing training, education or formal learning designed to support survivors of trafficking and modern day slavery as they transition from this ‘45 days’ of statutory emergency care (via National Referral Mechanism).

Day 46 Workshops are a unique blend of eight face to face confidence, identity and employability sessions which comprise of group activities and discussions, 1:1 coaching and mentoring and, where possible, a bespoke voluntary work placement or training opportunity. This comprehensive package helps survivors develop greater resilience, independent living and employability skills.

Day 46 Workshops include a modular curriculum covering identity, resourcefulness tools and self awareness through to personal purpose, personal development,  finding jobs, preparing CVs, preparing for interviews, exploring expectations within a UK workplace and working in a team.

Our Day 46 vocational placements and training opportunities provide survivors who have been through the Day 46 workshops and coaching to access unique training experiences with our partners across London.  Through our vocational placements, women have experienced placements in hairdressing, charity management, tailoring, jewellery making, administration and social media management. Thank you to our amazing vocational partners across London who make this possible.

Finally, many of the survivors we work with then experience up to 6 1:1 coaching sessions with us through our Day 46 Outreach designed to help them make that final push into college, training or other educational programmes that will help them secure work at the right time. our Day 46 Outreach programme is offered thanks to funding from Comic Relief and the London Community Foundation.
