In nine safe houses across Britain, the Medaille Trust provides refuge and freedom from modern slavery. It is one of the UK's largest providers of accommodation and round-the-clock support for victims.

The trust was launched when Sister Ann Teresa, of the Sisters of St Joseph of Annecy, who is now its life president, decided something must be done about the scourge of modern slavery. She gathered a group of friends from different religious congregations and they started tackling the problem.

What started in 2006 with the setting up of a house in the Catholic diocese of Portsmouth for women trafficked into prostitution, quickly grew into a national network supporting men, women and families trapped in modern slavery.

Apart from offering safe housing and providing support for victims, the trust works to raise awareness in communities and also partners with law enforcement authorities.

Medaille Trust follows the "four Ps" approach used by governments around the world to tackle the problem. They are prevention; protection; prosecution; and partnerships. It works with overseas projects to raise awareness about the risks of human trafficking and to support socio-economic development projects so that people are freed from vulnerable situations. One is the Mary Ward Loreto Foundation in Albania.

Every month, the trust provides an intelligence summary on modern slavery to the UK police. It also supports victims who are giving evidence against their traffickers. This has led to successful convictions.
