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 our results, and we share our knowledge.
Every six months, we publish the latest data showing what impact our partners have achieved with the Freedom Fund’s support. Our partners report into a common set of metrics, including how many people they are reaching directly with access to education and vocational training, and social, legal and government services; the outcomes of programs including people liberated from slavery, changes in public policy, and the number of perpetrators convicted; and the cost per person impacted.
Read our 2022/23 Annual Impact Report.
Below we have highlighted results up to end-2022. Currently we are partnering with 173 organisations we are investing in across our programs.
*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.
