Who do we help?

In order for us to consider taking a case, the survivor must be somebody who has suffered torture, or a family member of someone who has suffered torture.

For an act to be considered as torture, all of the following elements must be present:

When carried out by or with the consent or acquiescence of state authorities, or those acting in an official capacity (such as private security contractors), torture is subject to specific international rules.

If you fall within this category, or are a family member of someone who does and you want us to look into the case, or if you simply need advice on the possibilities available, contact us, preferably by emailing If possible, it is always better to use email rather than to telephone or write a letter. We will need the following initial details in your email:


Once we have made an initial assessment of the matter we will get back to you as soon as we can. There is no need to contact us again before this, as we will respond.
