Awareness Programmes:

 

' Say No to Domestic Abuse' - Bangladeshi Women's Domestic Violence Project (Completed)

 

Our project is specifically targeted to support, guide and advice women at an early stage – focusing on early intervention rather than after a prolonged period of violence and abuse. Our aim is to reduce the risk that women may experience or may face vulnerable to it earlier on by helping, supporting and guiding women to reduce their tolerance or acceptance of domestic violence.

 

  • We work with families including partners to educate them about the importance of developing relationships based on equality and respect. Create an environment where women will have the confidence to discuss their issues in a safe, secure and friendly environment.
  • We actively work to raise awareness of domestic violence issues amongst Bangladeshi Women for the purpose of preventing occurrence or re-occurrence.
  • We provide confidential bilingual advice, guidance and counseling support to access services for themselves and their children who have been victims of domestic violence or are feeling vulnerable to it whether it is health, housing, mental health care, sexual health care, family planning, or maternity care that is sensitive to their culture.
  • Signpost and referrals to appropriate service providers.
