Imkaan is a UK-based, black feminist organisation. We are the?only national second-tier women?s organisation dedicated to addressing violence against Black and ‘Minority Ethnic’ (BME) women and girls.
The organisation holds nearly two decades of experience of working around issues such as domestic violence, forced marriage and ?honour-based? violence. We work at local, national and international level, and in partnership with a range of organisations, to improve policy and practice responses to BME women and girls.
Imkaan works with its members to represent the expertise and perspectives of frontline, specialist and dedicated BME women?s organisations that work to prevent and respond to violence against women and girls. Imkaan delivers a unique package of support which includes: quality assurance; accredited training and peer education; sustainability support to frontline BME organisations; and facilitation of space for community engagement and development.
Our research activities support the ongoing development of a robust evidence base around the needs and aspirations of BME women and girls, as well as promising practice approaches to addressing violence. Imkaan is at the forefront of programmes and initiatives relating to forms of violence that disproportionately affect BME women and girls.

We are a group of black and minority women with years of experience of struggling for women?s human rights in the UK. Although based locally, our work has a national reach.
Southall Black Sisters, a not-for-profit, secular and inclusive organisation, was established in 1979 to meet the needs of Black (Asian and African-Caribbean) women. Our aims are to highlight and challenge all forms gender related violence against women, empower them to gain more control over their lives; live without fear of violence and assert their human rights to justice, equality and freedom.
For more than three decades we have been at the forefront of challenging domestic and gender ? related violence locally and nationally, and have campaigned for the provision of proper and accountable support services to enable women and their children to escape violent relationships and live in dignity.
We run an advice, advocacy and resource centre in West London which provides a comprehensive service to women experiencing violence and abuse and other forms of inequality. We offer specialist advice, information, casework, advocacy, counselling and self-help support services in several community languages, especially South Asian languages. Whilst our focus is on the needs of black and minority women, we will not turn any woman away who needs emergency help.
