REDRESS is a leading UK-based NGO that assists torture survivors to obtain justice and reparation and holds accountable the governments and individuals who perpetrate it. It was founded by a British torture survivor and is focused on using the law to strengthen victims’ access to justice and remedies for the harm suffered.


In the UK, REDRESS works directly with survivors and front-line service providers on legal and associated support needs. It also advocates the Government to strengthen compliance with anti-torture obligations, such as ensuring that the Government prosecutes or extradites alleged perpetrators found in the UK; refrains from ‘refouling’ persons to countries where they face a real risk of torture; and affords adequate support to vulnerable victims including Britons tortured abroad.


Internationally, REDRESS supports survivors in 40+ countries to bring legal claims in national, regional/international courts and related mechanisms. We work with civil society partners to engage governments, parliamentarians and policymakers to promote reforms and strengthen accountability for torture and related abuses. We work synergistically and in coordination with other actors to maximise the potential for impact.
