Our aim is to provide training to address the lack of awareness within local authority and private sector organisations who are in position to identify and support potential victims on honour abuse within their safeguarding procedures.
This will also include forced marriage and FGM (female genital mutilation). We will also offer one-to-one victim support and consultancy. We are endorsed by the Home Office and Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
We work with victim support and police forces across the country and are currently working closely with Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner.
Honour based violence and forced marriage represent serious and violent crimes. You may only have one chance to save someone.
Awareness training provided to:
- Police authorities
We also attend conferences and share life experiences to give a real impact on the matter so professionals can learn how to best support the related victims, to help police officers to have an understanding of this cultural issue and of how to best tackle with and investigate their cases.

Our aim is to work with schools, colleges, and universities to ensure the staff and students have the best support.
Children often consider school as a place of safety where they can speak to someone about their concerns. This is why it is so important to make sure that teachers fully understand issues such as honour based violence, forced marriage and female genital mutilation.
Teachers will then be in the best position to offer safe advice to their students and protect them from any harm.
We've created a blog for young people which allows them to engage in a fear-free zone where anyone can share their thoughts and experiences and have their voices heard.
We understand young people sometimes need someone to speak to and cannot always speak to family members or someone from the community. We will build trusting relationships and help save lives.
We will help raise their voices against violence and abuse. Our blog will help and support young people, creating a platform where they can openly discuss or leave messages to express any concerns they may have regarding abuse or any worries about anyone who might be going through abuse.
Our blog will be available to each and every one regardless of age or background.
Please get in touch so we can help more young people.
