Who we are
City Hearts was founded in 2005, beginning with a single home to help women with life controlling issues, shortly after we welcomed our first survivor of modern slavery. Since then, we have expanded across multiple regions and now provide accommodation and outreach support to hundreds of survivors of modern slavery every year with the aim of helping them to fully recover and thrive in society.
In 2018 we partnered with South Yorkshire Police to launch a trauma-informed programme committed to breaking the cycle of crime and rehabilitating offenders, partnering with other organisations such as South Yorkshire Police, Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service, Drug and Alcohol Services, amongst many others.
We are passionate about fully restoring the lives of those we support, and it would not be possible without our dedicated team of staff and volunteers.
We seek a number of passionate and experienced individuals to further strengthen our committed board of trustees. Through their guidance, energy and expertise, our staff team and volunteers are able to bring safety and support to the 1,000 or so individuals in our care at any one time.
Our trustees bring strategic oversight and direction, to ensure the charity is true to its purpose and effective in its mission of rebuilding the lives of survivors of Modern Slavery, as well as ex-offenders, whilst ensuring all governance responsibilities are fulfilled.
They champion those we support, promote the charity and its work and bring expertise in order to purposefully develop City Hearts and its impact.
City Hearts operates across the United Kingdom, with focussed service delivery across North England. Our head office is based in Sheffield, with other offices in Liverpool and Sunderland. Applications are welcomed from applicants across the United Kingdom.
