The Asian Women’s Resource Centre is leading ‘Ending Harmful Practices [EHP]’, funded by London Councils, to provide high-quality front-line and support services to voluntary and statutory organisations for those affected by Female Genital Mutilation, honour-based violence, forced marriage and any sexual and domestic violence.
Ashiana is one of 9 delivery partners.
“Collaborations are at the core of what Women’ Resource Centre does. Through its unique position in the sector, WRC has been considered good at reminding the sector of their grassroots and about the ethics and morals of the work. We are committed to building a strong, thriving and diverse women’s sector.”
The pan-London scope of Ending Harmful Practices addresses an identified gap in the provision of a co-ordinated, specialist service.
The project will provide one-to-one support to BME women affected by harmful practices and also raise awareness to increase early identification of those at risk and improve institutional responses.
