The Poppy Project: Support for Female Victims of Trafficking
The Poppy Project, part of Eaves, was set up in 2003 to provide high-quality support, advocacy and accommodation to trafficked women; that is, women who have been brought into the UK to be exploited in some way. This could include but is not limited to sexual exploitation, labour exploitation, forced illicit activities and organ harvesting.
The Poppy Project can accept referrals from anywhere in England and Wales, and offers outreach assessment and support and access to further services. For more information please visit Eaves website
