Freedom From Torture

Leeds Freedom from Torture Student Group
Join this group » 

We are a student group/society at the University of Leeds affiliated with the charity, Freedom from Torture. 

Freedom from Torture, formerly the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture, has been working for more than 30 years to provide direct clinical services to survivors of torture who arrive in the UK, as well as striving to protect and promote their rights. Since its inception, over 50,000 individuals have been referred for help, many of whom are asylum seekers and refugees. 

More info on the charity is here:

We hold lots of different events ranging from fundraisers to film screenings to hosting informative talks and campaigning focused on the issues that Freedom from Torture work with. We hope to spread awareness of the charity's ongoing efforts and provide a base of support for Freedom from Torture at the University of Leeds.

Membership with us gives you free acess to all of our events and the chance to join the growing network of Freedom from Torture student groups on campuses across the country. 

If any of this interests you, please get in invloved! Come along to one of our meetings, like our facebook page or email us directly.

Thank you very much!
