Belonging is power

Domestic workers are often isolated, underpaid, and made to feel like they don’t belong.

We’re building a community to change that, and we need your help. By standing together we can lift each other up, know that we belong, and claim what is ours. Because our place is here.


It's time we put the rights of domestic workers on the map

Unseen, we feel disconnected from our community. Alone, we can lose our sense of belonging. But together, we can understand and celebrate our identity- and we can lay claim to what is ours.

Our Place Is Here Documentary, created in collaboration with director Tracy Kiryango and FDWA.

In 2012, the government revoked the Overseas Domestic Workers visa concession, removing the rights of domestic workers in the UK to change employers. This has increased their vulnerability to abuse, exploitation and reduced protection. Six women share their journey from the Philippines to the UK, how it’s affected their families back home, and the community they’ve created in the UK.
