Our Services

We deliver social support, training, the facilitation of income generating platforms, and networks

We work with individuals, organisations, and multi-agencies creating awareness and delivering a coordinated service.

 

  Our unique business model facilitates women in three key areas:

 

  • Social support through the provision of guidance, casework support, advice outreach, and signposting

.

  • Education and development of skills through coaching and training

  • Economic stability through income generation, business support and facilitation of technology and giving access to the broader marketplace

 

Our work is bilingually delivered, as we understand the impact of language barriers, cultural and religious constraints ethnic minority women face.

Physical, Emotional & Economic Abuse

Are you or someone you care about in an abusive relationship?

Do you recognise the signs of domestic abuse, physical, emotional, or financial?

 

Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone.  When thinking about abuse, physical abuse may come to mind first. But abuse can come in many forms. 

 

Physical abuse is when someone sets out to physically hurt or harm you. This includes behaviours such as slapping, hitting, biting, hair-pulling, burning or throwing things at you. Physical abuse can cause serious injury and sometimes even leads to death. 

 

If you or someone you know is being physically abused, speak to someone immediately about the situation. Get the support you need to feel safe.

 

Emotional abuse is just as serious as physical abuse.  Psychological abuse involves a person’s attempts to frighten, control, or isolate you. It’s in the abuser’s words and actions, as well as their persistence in these behaviours.

Economic abuse is a common form of abuse and is equally serious as physical, mental, and emotional abuse and can have long-lasting effects.

 

It involves an abuser restricting a person’s ability to acquire, use and maintain money or other economic resources like:

  • Restricting partner's access to money,

  • Forcing them into debt

  • Preventing them from working 

  • Refusing to allow access to a car, mobile phone etc...

 

Increased rates of multiple violence especially during the pandemic, have meant more women, particularly those with young children, need support.

 

We work with organisations that support women experiencing or have experienced social and domestic abuse and women who want to leave an abusive relationship and now want to move on and rebuild a life.  

If you're suffering from any form of abuse, please contact us

Reach Out For Support

If you’re being abused, trust your instincts. Know that it isn’t right, and you don’t have to live this way.

You don’t have to go through this alone. Talk to a trusted friend or family member who will listen without judgment. If that’s not an option, consider joining a support group for people who have experienced abuse or trauma.

 

Reach out for support and contact our team…

 

If you aren’t in immediate danger and you need to talk or find someplace to go, call the freephone, 24-hour National Domestic Abuse Helpline at 0808 2000 247. This 24/7 hotline can put you in touch with service providers and shelters across England.

If you fear immediate physical violence, call 999 or your local emergency services.

Mental Health Support

 

In England and Wales, nearly one in five of us come from a BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) background. Challenges such as racism, stigma and inequalities can affect the mental health of people from BAME communities. But the situation is particularly dire for some minority communities, where barriers of language and culture can make it hard to seek and get help.​

DID YOU KNOW:​

 

People from minority ethnic communities often face disadvantages in society. They are more likely to:

 

  • Experience poverty and homelessness​

  • Do less well at school​

  • Be unemployed​

  • Be in contact with the criminal justice system​

  • Face challenges accessing services​

  • Older South Asian women are an at-risk group for suicide

 

Each of these can increase the risk of developing mental health problems.​

Whether you're concerned about yourself or a loved one, find out how you can get help. Contact us today.

HEAL YOURSELF - TALK THREAPY SUPPORT

 

Talk Therapy is aimed at providing emotional support to minority ethnic women experiencing emotional distress, struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide, depression, and other anxiety disorders.

 

Sometimes it’s hard to talk to family and friends and you just need that one person who takes the time to speak to you.

We provide multicultural bilingual listening service without judging you or telling you what to do.

 

We offer our services via phone, SMS, internet chat or in person depending on locations.​

Our staff and psychologists are 'linguistic and cultural skills of bilingual' professionals.​

 Get in touch and find out how you can access the service.
