Violence against women happens across all our communities in Cardiff, all ethnic groups and cultural backgrounds

However, the form that the violence or abuse takes may vary.  In some communities domestic abuse may be perpetrated by extended family members, or may include forced marriage or female genital mutilation

Whatever your experience as a woman from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic community you may face additional barriers to receiving the help you need.  Getting help and trying to escape from domestic violence/abuse your experiences may also be compounded by racism

RISE is a service that has been specifically designed to be accessible and effectively support women from Black, Asian and ethic minority communities and here are a few of the things we've built into the service:

  • we provide culturally sensitive and supportive support
  • we can provide support in your preferred language
  • we have a deep understanding of the enhanced risk issues for women from certain communties
  • we can provide culturally sensitive accommodation if you need a place of safety

If you are in immediate danger or experiencing high levels of trauma because of your experiences you will be allocated your own personal adviser who will be with you throughout your journey to recovery and safety.
