Based on actual accounts with Key Workers involved in supporting victims of Human Trafficking, SAFE SPACE draws attention to the tireless task of the Key Workers who aid victims of trafficking and the toll that can take.
In the development of this fictionalized drama we drew on factual discussions with Key Workers at our wonderful partner charity UNSEEN https://www.unseenuk.org. Please visit their website and help where you can.
