Welcome to our site! We are a small group of people working to support ‘Freedom from Torture’. We hope that these pages let you see what we are doing and that you might feel inspired to join us and/or to link into some of our various activities and projects.

Freedom from Torture (formerly the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture) is the only organisation in the UK dedicated solely to the treatment of torture survivors.

The Edinburgh Local Group works to raise awareness of the need for the work of Freedom from Torture throughout the United Kingdom and to raise funds for that work.  We have a lot of fun in the process and we meet some amazing people.
