occupational therapist, Avon and Wiltshire mental health partnership – NHS.
In 2018, Kezia Edridge graduated in OT. Throughout training she had a passion for anti-trafficking work and injustices surrounding it which led to attending conferences and work experience in this sector. Kezia completed acute physical OT rotations before working for The Salvation Army, anti-trafficking and modern-day slavery unit as a specialist support worker in a 32 bed women’s safehouse. This reaffirmed the emerging role OT’s could be playing in this important setting. Since, she is working part-time as an OT in mental health services and exploring how OT can be shaped in the Anti-trafficking setting.
