THE PILOT PROJECT
The TortureID pilot project was the organisation’s first piece of work and took place between May 2019 and January 2021 (extended due to COVID-19 and difficulties conducting in-person assessments safely) in West Yorkshire and Greater Manchester. The aim of the pilot project was to offer specialist health assessments to 30 survivors of international human rights abuses and to produce concise medical reports in a short timescale to aid their rehabilitation. A further aim was to offer training to GPs and health teams on identifying, assessing and documenting survivors of international human rights abuses. The pilot project has been independently evaluated.
