Honour Based Abuse, FGM and Domestic Violence Support

IKWRO is a leading organisation within the field of Gender Based Abuse and Harmful Practices, particularly “Honour Based Abuse” and “FGM”, affecting Middle Eastern, North African and Afghan women (MENA).

Our unique specialism enables us to provide a holistic, supportive and non-judgemental service to enable safeguarding and empowerment of women and girls from MENA and other communities.

All of our advisors originate from the communities we work with therefore have an authentic understanding about the challenges and issues women face, and are able to deliver services in community languages.

We speak Farsi, Kurdish, Arabic, Dari, Pashto, Turkish, and English. Our reputation has grown over the years with both our client group and with professionals such as the police; government agencies i.e. Forced Marriage Unit and other statutory/voluntary organisations.
