Help for Survivors

If you or a family member have been tortured, and you need help, it is possible that we can help. REDRESS offers its services free of charge.

Owing to limited resources and other practical considerations we cannot take up every case which comes to us, but even if we can’t take up your case, we will always try to offer practical advice where possible. Sometimes we can also refer you to other organisations.

If you want us to consider taking on your case:

  • If it is possible for you to do so, please fill out our New Case Enquiry Form and send it to us at [email protected] This will help us assess whether we are in a position to take on your case. Please do not worry if you are unable to fill in some of the questions, complete as many as you can and we can talk on the phone about any of the questions you find difficult to answer.
  • If you don’t feel able to fill out our New Case Enquiry Form, please contact us by mail on [email protected]

It is always better to email us if you can, rather than to telephone or write a letter. However, if you do not have access to email, or are concerned about security, call us on +44 (0) 20 7793 1777 and leave brief details, including your name and contact number for a Legal Advisor to return the call.

In order for us to take on your case, we will need to determine whether what happened to you falls within our mandate and also, whether we believe that there is something we can do to help and we have the time and resources to assist.
