If you know someone who is experiencing domestic abuse, it is important to approach the situation with sensitivity and understanding. Here are a few tips on how to support someone who is experiencing abuse:

  • Listen to them and believe them. Abusive situations can be complex and difficult to understand, but it is important to trust and validate the feelings and experiences of the person you are supporting.
  • Provide them with information about resources and services that can help, such as our domestic refuge referral center for women from the BAME community.
  • Let them know that they are not alone and that help is available.
  • Encourage them to seek professional support and help in leaving the abusive situation.

Our charity also supports refuge referrals for women from the BAME community. We understand the importance of cultural sensitivity and providing support in a safe and welcoming environment. Our team can help signpost victims to appropriate refuges and provide guidance and support every step of the way.
