Don't have time to donate right now?
We are delighted to announce the launch of Sikh Women’s Aid. This is a community-based organisation set up by women from the Sikh community from across the West Midlands. The founders of Sikh Women’s Aid share a common ambition and have therefore set up an organisation to tackle the negative impact of cultural influences, and specifically where this influence can lead to the exploitation of women and girls.
The team has over 40 years’ experience combined in the domestic abuse and violence against women and girls sector. This includes abuse in faith-based settings, grooming, child sexual exploitation, rehabilitation and rebuilding lives.
We have also worked with and supported vulnerable men, women, children including those with additional learning needs.
Our goal is to empower victims to take control of their own lives to become survivors by breaking free of toxic cultural practices that seek to disempower the vulnerable, especially those with language barriers, that prevent them from accessing the right kind of help and support. Sikh Women’s Aid is developing a robust system of support which includes risk and safety planning to improve the health and well-being of survivors via our Five-Strand Framework.
1: Crisis Intervention and Support.
2: Early Intervention and Prevention.
3: Mental Health & Resilience building.
4: Grassroots Community Voice.
5: Feed into policy at all levels.
Our plans are big, our vision is far reaching but we need your financial support to help make our vision into a reality. You donations will go towards supporting victims of any form of violence or abuse by trained professional who have the right qualifications and experience
