As part of the Sixth Form Speakers Programme, Sister Dorothy Paul visited the school in November to speak about the tremendous evil of Human Trafficking in our country and city today. Sister told us about the work of the Medaille Trust which helps to rehabilitate victims.
The Trust is a charity founded by groups of religious sisters in 2006 to work against the evils of human trafficking congregations and since then the Trust has been a provider of support and safe house provision for the victims of human trafficking. The Trust seeks to empower women, men and children who have been freed from the human-trafficking and the modern day slavery industry in the UK, enabling them to regain their dignity and self-worth. The Medaille Trust provides safe housing and offers opportunities for physical and psychological healing, rehabilitation and protection. Today it operates 8 safe houses which offer a total of 75 bed spaces to women, men and children.
The Sixth Form would like to thank Sister Dorothy for her very illuminating talk which really brought home what a huge issue this in the English midlands and the work of the Church in helping to bring hope and healing to those people who are victims of this terrible crime.
