Medaille Trust’s mission is to provide refuge and freedom from modern slavery. They are the largest provider of supported safe house beds for victims of modern slavery in the UK.
Medaille Trust began when Sister Ann Teresa SSJA. the Trust’s Life President, decided ‘something must be done’. With a group of friends from different religious congregations she began to tackle the scourge of modern slavery. From a safe house for women trafficked into prostitution in 2006 the Medaille Trust is now the largest provider of supported safe house beds for victims of modern slavery in the UK.
Sharon Benning-Prince has been involved in anti-trafficking and female empowerment work since 2008. A practising lawyer, she has worked with companies in relation to their supply chains, transparency and ethical policies, including working on the Rana Plaza factory collapse and compensation scheme with Primark. She is also involved in several female empowerment projects that include living wage for garment workers and ensuring equal rights for women in the garment industry.
She has further written and trained on the modern slavery act and compliance and provides pro-bono assistance to the International Justice Mission (https://www.ijm.org/) and is an anti-slavery envoy for the Medaille Trust.
In addition to her legal qualification, Sharon also holds a post graduate degree in Slavery and Liberation and she has an incredible passion for human rights and female empowerment and works closely with the Circle NGO, a platform for women empowering women and to give a voice to those without a voice.
