“Start by doing what’s necessary, then do what’s possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
Slavery happens within Australian borders. This is unacceptable. Therefore, the Freedom Hub exists to end slavery in Australia; help people who have experienced this crime recover and partner in the fight to end global slavery.
Our Survivor School provides survivors long-term wrap around support. We do this by running free, personalised classes to assist them in recovering from complex trauma. Further, we have courses to help them become ready to work. Our Peer Support Program provides activities, workshops, community building and recreational sports.
We run our social enterprise businesses to help with the funding of the administration of these activities. Our cafe, event venue and online retail, not only raise funds, but also become a focal point for community involvement and awareness. As a result, most of our administrative costs are covered by the business, and our supporters’ donations go directly to helping survivors.
It might seem impossible to have a world of ‘freedom’. But we will work toward this vision, one step at a time. First locally, then nationally, then slowly influencing the world through business, ethics and social forums.
Help Us End Modern Slavery
We cannot end slavery in Australia on our own. So we are always looking for advocates and ambassadors to drive the vision forward in their local town or city. Additionally, we need businesses and philanthropists to partner in this vision and volunteers to help make it happen.
“Contact us” if you are keen to be a part of this. We would love to hear from you. Also we would love to encourage you to read some of the “articles” we have written to educate and inspire and motivate action to ending modern slavery. You will see we have an entire library of topics for you to discover.
