Ella's Home provides support to women across London and beyond as they work through the trauma of their experiences. Each woman works with a caseworker to navigate the complexities of recovery, providing access to essential services so they can continue to live in freedom.

Due to an evident and growing need, we opened our first safe house in 2016, in addition to our work in the community. In the home we provide individually tailored care to each woman, and work with her to encourage independent living. 

Through Ella's Home women gain a sense of community and belonging and the space to define their own future free of exploitation. 



“They solved my problems like they were their own. The best support system anyone could wish for.  Sometimes I ask myself ‘what did I do to deserve this?’ No-one has treated me with such affection and love since my mum.”
