Domestic Abuse is a major cause of homelessness for South Asian women. Our dedicated South Asian workers provide crisis intervention to South Asian women and children who are experiencing domestic abuse.
The workers assist families in crisis, they offer culturally sensitive support and help to access and legal and practical remedies to enable women and children to remain in their family home and lower repeat incidents of domestic abuse.
This service has proven to be extremely successful at both supporting women and raising the issue of domestic abuse within South Asian communities.
We also have a dedicated Polish worker who has successfully engaged with Polish victims and victims from Eastern Europe.
