Ella’s works with women exiting situations of trafficking and exploitation.
We have a lovely welcoming home for women recovering from trafficking and sexual exploitation where women can live until they are ready for independent living.
We offer outreach support to women across London and beyond as they work past their previous experience. We offer long term support and bespoke support to fit each individual.
Who is Ella?
Ella is a girl who has been sexually exploited since she was a teenager. When she arrived in London she was further exploited in a brothel and used by wealthy clients, and she soon became seriously ill. Tragically, the support she desperately needed at that time was not available to her. Ella was extremely vulnerable, and yet she had no access to a safe place to stay. Ella's is named after her.
A regular gift ensures the ongoing protection for the women of Ella’s. We're so grateful to the generous people supporting Ella’s with a monthly gift starting from £10 per month.
A sustained income will ensure the continued safety of the women, enabling their recovery to freedom.
Running to the Light
We are so proud of one of our residents for sharing her story which has been made into this incredible video by award winning documentary makers On Par Productions and TRIBE.
Lucia* was so happy to tell her story because she is determined to do everything in her power to prevent what happened to her and to stop human trafficking. In fact she is currently working on writing her own book. She even said that she wants to sell her book to make proceeds so that Ella’s can continue to support women on their journey to recovery.
When abuse starts at such a young age and then leads to exploitation, it goes right to the core of who you are as a person. There are gruelling issues to work through and we’d give you a false impression if we said that she’s now fully better, but through love, care and acceptance she’s on a journey to healing and it’s an honour to be part of the process.
The video highlights some of the real and tragic realities of human trafficking and the hope-filled change which can be achieved through long-term aftercare and support for survivors.
Thanks to TRIBE for their support of us and more importantly for their support of survivors.
