"JAN Trust is doing an outstanding job supporting and protecting the most vulnerable in society across London and the UK. JAN Trust is not afraid to speak out on a number of subjects, including extremism, hate crime, forced marriages, that others fear to approach, I commend their ability to do so and it is for this reason that I am very proud to be an Ambassador of JAN Trust.
JAN Trust provides a safe haven for women, who are at the heart of many families and communities. The extensive work JAN Trust does provides women with vital skills that allow them to become part of society, supporting the creation of peaceful and inclusive societies."
