Service Details

IKWRO Women's Refuge

IKWRO's Women's Refuge is aimed at vulnerable women who are at risk from violent partners or families. Women in the refuge receive specialist support from IKWRO’s expert teams, who speak six different languages, providing advice, advocacy, counselling and training.

Safety From Violence

If you are experiencing problem and need assistance,

As “honour” based violence and forced marriage experts, who speak MENA community languages and therefore do not need to rely on external interpreters, we are perfectly placed to provide holistic, safe refuge support for MENA women and girls. We help empower them to restart and build new independent lives free from any form of violence.
