Older Women

We understand its harder for older women to reach out for help and support especially if the violence and/or abuse is long lasting.  But we understand and our specially trained team are here to help.

We know the problems facing older survivors are common to all women experiencing violence/abuse.  However, older survivors experience are often exacerbated by social, cultural and physical factors and we will tailor our response to your individual needs and situation.

For older women things can be complicated dur to generational attitudes, increased risk of adult family abuse (child to parent or carer abuse) and older women are amongst the most invisible victims of domestic violence/abuse.

BAME Women

Violence against women afffects women from all ethnic groups, and there is no evidence to suggest that women from some ethnic or cultural communities are any more at risk than others.

However, the form the abuse takes may vary; in some communities, for example, domestic abuse may be perpetrated by extended family members, or it may include forced marriage.

Women from Black, Asian or minority ethnic communities may have their experiences compounded by racism which is pervasive and institutional in the UK.

Our team understand the intersectional issues faced by survivors from Black, Asian and ethnic minority communities and we have specialist within our team who can help with specific issues like FGM, so called 'honour' based violence and force marriage.
