Adavu tackles modern slavery in the West Midlands through

  1. Supporting adult survivors of modern slavery living in the West Midlands to rebuild lives of freedom, hope and dignity
  2. Working in partnership with other organisations and agencies, which is crucial to achieving our aims and will make our work even more effective
  3. Influencing, advocating and modelling best practice, in order to drive systemic change in tackling modern slavery and providing survivor support.


A core part of Adavu's work is long term, expert support to adult survivors making the transition into life in a local community. We support, assist, and enable survivors of Modern Slavery to rebuild their lives, engage with relevant services for their care and well-being, and move forward productively after the traumatic experiences they have encountered as victims and survivors.

Our specialist Case Workers help identify immediate needs (e.g. accommodation, clothing, food, access to healthcare, benefits, legal representatives). We then work with them on longer-term goals that may include
going to college, accessing employment or voluntary work, or connecting with local social networks and organisations such as Parents and Toddlers, cultural groups or places of worship.

We also organise social events and monthly wellbeing activities such as yoga and crafts. Our aim is to gently improve confidence, build trust and make connections with people from similar lived experience. In addition, we provide regular wellbeing calls for clients who wish this.

A growing element of Adavu's work is our co-production approach that has enabled the development of an Advisory Group owned and run by survivors to meet regularly, carry out peer research and work to
make change through a growing and more confident voice.
