Providing practical and emotional support to ethnic minority (BME) women, children, and young people experiencing or fleeing domestic abuse in all its forms.

They recognise that ethnic minority women have additional challenges when experiencing or leaving abusive relationships, such as concerns over visa status, language barriers, and cultural misunderstanding. 

Their service is completely confidential and all of their staff and student interns are women.

They support BME women who identify as LGBTI, and BME young people under 18 who identify as LGBTI. They recognise that a person’s sexual orientation, gender identity, or intersex status can be the target of a domestic abuse perpetrator.

You can reach out to them via phone, private Facebook message (Shakti WA Aid) and via the contact form on their website at any time.
