A Liverpool charity that supports victims of modern slavery and other forms of exploitation or abuse has moved into a new city centre base.

City Hearts has agreed a deal with Bruntwood Works to take 2,096 sq ft of refurbished space on the fifth floor of the Cotton Exchange in Bixteth Street. The move follows an increase in demand for its services.

Those services include finding crisis accommodation and education programmes for vulnerable men and women. Will Speed-Evans at City Hearts said: “Our work helps people whose lives have been negatively impacted by modern slavery, crime and violence.

“It creates projects that break the cycle of vulnerability by supporting them on their journey towards recovery and independence. Demand for our services has continued to grow in recent times.

“We needed a new home where our team could continue not only to expand provision of our services but also support our commercial aspirations as a charity. The Cotton Exchange offers huge scope for fundraising events, networking and community engagement and is an ideal location for this next step in our evolution.”

Cotton Exchange is already home to charitable organisations including Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation and An Hour For Others, as well as a wide variety of independent SMEs in the digital and creative sectors. The building also features The Old Hall events space, a contemporary roof terrace and several collaboration and meeting spaces.

Tony Reed, head of commercial at Bruntwood Works in Liverpool, said: “City Hearts does incredibly important work in supporting vulnerable people and we were pleased to work with them in securing a new, more flexible office space and location.”
