Time to celebrate!

1178780 could be any number, but for FREEDOM 2 this marks a new season. On Thursday 14thJune 2018 FREEDOM 2 was registered as a charity. FREEDOM 2 had been running as a limited company in London since January 2017, but the intention had always been to be established as a charity. This doesn’t mean that FREEDOM 2 will be changing the work that they are doing, but hopefully people will recognise that the work that we are doing is to benefit others and being a charity will obviously open up more funding opportunities. Other updates: Plans are under way to launch our new art programme that we will be running called FREEDOM 2 Create. This will be a 6 week programme in addition to our 8 week self-development programme, FREEDOM 2 Girls.…

Mel Manning has given up her day job to support young survivors and potential victims of trafficking

South Woodford mum-of-two Mel Manning has given up her day job to support young survivors and potential victims of trafficking with her group Freedom2.

Ten years ago, primary school teacher Mel Manning, of Stanley Road, South Woodford, had never really thought about child trafficking.

She said: “I’d never heard about it before, but as soon as I did, I couldn’t believe such a horrible thing could happen to such young children. “It was so far removed from anything I had ever experienced or even heard about. “I wanted…
