Apna Sahara

Are you a woman being abused?

Apna Ghar can offer support to women and their families who have been affected by domestic abuse and harmful practices.  We offer practical and emotional support to help women rebuild their lives.

We combine the specific needs of BAME women and expertise in domestic abuse services.

If your first language is not English, it may be much harder for you to understand the systems and support available or to access appropriate sources of help. We can either support you directly or refer you to another organisation that can offer the support.

Our service is FREE and confidential

 

Support offered

Have you experienced domestic abuse?

Or do you know someone who has?

Anyone can experience domestic abuse regardless of their background.  Domestic abuse affects women from all ethnic backgrounds.

We can offer practical help ranging from:

  • Emotional support, following experiencing domestic abuse in a culturally safe and confidential environment.

  • Practical support and guidance in seeking support from agencies in South Tyneside or outside of the area if you prefer.

  • Safety planning.

  • Information and advice on the rights and entitlements to help empower women and their families experiencing domestic abuse.
