Ethical Business for Purpose with Sally Irwin

My next guest is no stranger to a podcast with me. She has been the voice for modern slavery and human trafficking in Australia in recent years. After seeing the women in Germany being trafficked across eastern borders for sex and supporting them, she returned home to Australia, thinking we were immune to such horror. She soon discovered that the reality was that modern slavery did exist in Australia for tens of thousands of people and not just the sex trade - this made her angry and fueled her mission to create the Freedom Hub.

Sally Irwin is the Founder of Freedom Hub, which is a registered charity that equips survivors to live in freedom and they welcome volunteers and local fundraising events to help this cause succeed.

They also run a social enterprise café and retail store, which provides an opportunity for every Australian to choose ethically sourced products with no slavery in the supply chain, while making a difference in the lives of others. 100% of profits support the administration of our Survivor School.

With Freedom Hub cafes on the Gold Coast and in Sydney, along with an event venue focused on ethical event celebrations, this truly is a cause we need to get behind.

This podcast is brought to you by Ethical Change Agency.

    The Freedom Hub

    Moving to Germany in 2008 when her husband took up a Diplomatic post in Berlin, Sally was confronted with the issue of human trafficking – particularly from Eastern Europe, and established a charity in Berlin to fund organisations that supported the victims.

    She also became very active in a café supporting women trafficked into prostitution, and was personally involved in helping a number of these women return to their country and begin a new life.

    Returning to Sydney in July 2012, Sally applied her passion and experience to the issue of modern day slavery here in Australia. As a volunteer Sally worked in the Salvation Army’s Trafficking and Slavery Safe House, for two years. In this role she interviewed, trained, coordinated a new volunteer movement; set up training courses to help survivors become work ready and was actively engaged in encouraging the women to return to the workforce.

    In March 2014 Sally founded The Freedom Hub Survivor School, that trains, equips and provides work experience to survivors of modern slavery in Australia. In 2016 she opened a “business for purpose” which consists of a café, venue & retail to fund the administration of the Survivor School. With her co-workers she is helping survivors to rebuild their lives to a point where they can be employed, self-sufficient and have regained their self-worth.
