A rare opportunity for a private visit to this charity which has been working for more than 25 years to provide direct clinical services to survivors of torture who arrive in the UK, as well as striving to protect and promote their rights. There are several branches around the UK and Scotland. We will hear about the mission of the organisation and its working methods – there will also be an opportunity for small groups to meet and talk to specialist practitioners.
