Domestic Violence Services
Jaikara supports victims of domestic abuse and honor-based violence with a focus predominantly on women from South Asian communities. We provide our support in a number of communitylanguage to ensure every victim of violence gets the help that they need. We work in partnership to raise awareness on taboo subjects such as Domestic Abuse, Mental Health, Female Genital Mutilation, LGBT, and Gender Equality.
How We Help
The latest Government advice during the COVID 19 crisis is for all of us to stay in our homes.
However for victims of domestic abuse, home can feel like the least safe place that they could be. Jaikara is still here helping victims to stay safe through our emergency helpline.
Contact us If you are anxious, depressed, scared or feeling at a loss about what to do – you do not need to continue to suffer on your own.
We provide a support service to survivors of domestic violence including those at the
point of crisis.
We help survivors of forced marriage, honour based violence and those with no recourse to public funds.
After assessing and managing any immediate risks, victims will then be offered a free program of mentoring and support. Awareness of legal rights to protection and the financial, housing, health and educational support already available to them will be promoted, with Jaikara helping women to maintain their mental wellbeing during this difficult life transition. Jaikara provides support by working in partnership with like-minded people and organisations to reduce and eliminate the sufferings inflicted on individuals from domestic abuse and honour-based violence.
We also organise seminars and campaigns to raise awareness on taboo subjects such as Domestic Abuse, Mental Health, Female Genital Mutilation and Gender Equality.
