COUNSELLING.

We offer a counselling service that can help women and girls to understand themselves and their experiences more. We offer a number of long-term and short-term styles of counselling that are helpful for different people and we will work with women and girls to identify the best way forward.

ADVOCACY.

Our advocacy service offers practical support to survivors aged 13 and over, who have experienced any form of gender-based violence. Our advocates support and accompany through the Criminal Justice System and any subsequent court proceedings. We can assist beneficiaries in understanding their rights and the services they can access. We also help with practical matters, such as housing, benefits, health services etc.

OUTREACH.

We provide a confidential and independent Outreach Service to Black femme survivors. The service is provided by a team of Outreach & Engagement Officers, who have been trained to support survivors of gender-based violence, and who specialise and are experienced in supporting survivors who experience additional marginalisation and barriers to accessing support.

LIVE CHAT.

Black women and girls contact us for many reasons. They may be feeling distressed, overwhelmed, upset or frightened and need someone to support them and understand how they are feeling. Any femme in need of a ‘listening ear’ can use our webchat/livechat feature 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.

TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT.

We offer an array of specialist training and workshop packages for professionals to further their understanding of all forms of Violence Against Women & Girls and Childhood Sexual Abuse and teach them how to work with (Black) women and girls affected by traumatic experiences; as well as how to respond to any form of abuse in their working life and personal life.
