People can self-refer or we can make a referral for them. This is done online.
http://www.helenbamber.org/referrals/ They don’t accept referrals from within detention, so it would need to be done as soon as they leave.
They consider referrals of men and women who:
1. Are over 18 years old
2. Are living in London*
3. Have experienced direct extreme human cruelty including torture, human trafficking and other forms of interpersonal violence
4. Have ongoing legal protection needs (i.e. do not yet have legal status in the UK)
5. Have primary mental health needs relating to their history of trauma
