Championing garment workers to drive long-term sustainable change
The Garment and Textile Workers Trust
Support, advocacy and remedy for garment and textile workers.
The Garment and Textile Workers Trust has been set up to provide support, advocacy and remedy for garment and textile workers, initially in Leicester.
To do this, we commissioned research from Nottingham University Human Rights Lab that provided us with a thorough, contemporary and holistic view of the challenges garment workers face across the sector.
We want to compliment the ongoing work of others in the sector, not to compete with it.
Therefore, we are targeting local organisations to help us deliver on three key priorities for our initial funding. These are:
- Provision of English Language training and education for garment workers
- Advocacy support work to promote workers accessing and enforcing their rights
- Donations to Food Banks situated in in the garment and textile district to help workers with the cost-of-living crisis
