Overview

In keeping with our investment roots, we take our role in evaluating our impact very seriously. We direct resources to anti-slavery initiatives across the world where they can make the biggest difference. We measure what works, we learn from unexpected results, and we share our knowledge.

Transparent results, published online

Every six months we publish the latest data showing what impact our partners have achieved with the Freedom Fund’s support.

*Number of people liberated from any form of slavery, be it through gradual change of circumstance or shorter “rescue event”. The Freedom Fund’s approach is to only support liberations where services for survivor recovery are provided. We formalised this policy with partners in July 2016. Prior to this date a small proportion of reported liberations may not have included follow-up support.

Survivor recovery services are provided (by Freedom Fund partner or other agency) to ensure the individual can resettle with their family or independently, and can access socio-economic and legal assistance to ensure their freedom can be sustained.
