Our Services

We deliver women-only advice and support, training, income-generating programmes and networks

We work with individuals, organizations, and multi-agencies to create awareness and deliver coordinated services.

  Our unique business model facilitates women in three key areas:

 

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

.

  • Skills development through one-to-one coaching, group workshops, and training

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

 

 We also deliver bilingual services and workshops as we understand the limitations of language barriers and cultural and religious constraints for ethnic minority women.

Physical, Emotional & Economic Abuse

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

Do you recognize 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 behaviors 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 FOR BAME WOMEN

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 gender inequalities can affect the mental health of women from BAME communities.

But the situation is particularly dire for some women in minority communities, where barriers to language and culture can make it hard to seek and get help. ​

DID YOU KNOW: ​

 

Women 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 your own mental health or a loved one, find out how you can get help.

 

If you are from a Black, Asian, or Minority Ethnic background, you may experience a different level of mental illness than the wider population.

Things like fear, stigma, and lack of culturally sensitive treatment can act as barriers to accessing mental health care for women from BAME backgrounds.  

There are options available to help you to overcome some of these barriers. If you’re having mental health issues you can get help.   If you have problems with your support and treatment there are ways to deal with this and improve your care.

We provide mental health support or services to women from a Black, Asian, or Minority Ethnic background. Need more advice?

Contact us today at: support@shewise.org

TALK & LISTEN THERAPY SUPPORT

 

Talk and Listen Therapy is designed to provide emotional support to women experiencing emotional distress, struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide, depression, and other anxiety disorders.

 

Sometimes we all find it hard to talk to family and friends.

Just talking to someone anonymously without being judged or being told what to do can make a huge difference to our lives and our mental health 

 

​We provide multicultural bilingual talking and listening services 

 

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

Our staff and psychologists are bilingual professionals.​

Talking to the right people can make a difference in your life.

MEAL SUPPORT AND FOOD PARCELS FOR WOMEN EXPERIENCING POVERTY AND HOMELESSNESS

Since 2016, SHEWISE in partnership with Community Eats has been providing hot meals and food parcels to homeless and refugee women in Central London every weekend.
