Survivors of Torture Activity Fund STAF Www.stafund.org.uk
We are a charitable organisation with close links to Freedom From Torture FFT in Manchester. We work hard to raise about £400/ month to provide activites such as gym and swimming passes, childcare, and other activites and supporting equipment to promote the well being of torture survivors and their families who have all been severely traumatised .
We hold several fund raising activities each year and there are currently about 20 recipients of the money And there are often more waiting. However it is difficult to keep up this level of income as we are a small group of volunteers,so please donate whatever you can manage. If you can run to a monthly regular payment that would be very good as it would increase the income we can rely on each month.
