We are proud to be members of Imkaan who provide mechanisms for a collective voice of Black and Ethnic Minority ending violence against women and girls’ sectors.

We have strong established working relationships with our landlord Sanctuary Housing and Local Authority various departments to ensure Amadudu are involved in shaping strategies and plans for domestic abuse services for women.
Supporting women can also involve closer working partnerships to ensure the families holistic needs are met, working with social services, solicitors, immigration solicitors, police, health practitioners, other agencies supporting women with cultural and additional needs.
We work in partnership with Savera a local organisation supporting violence against women and girls, fleeing forced marriage or honour-based abuse.
What our Stakeholders have said about us:
“They are a great team; I know if I refer a woman there, she is going to be looked after and receive a great service”.
Professional and caring staff and organisation, they do wonderful work very understanding, supportive and experienced in their field”
One of the most respected Black led organisations in the community always willing to offer advice, information and support others.
Giving, supportive, provided me and my kids with lovely memories, helped me make nice friends and feel safe, we love our new home.
Clean, comfortable and welcoming refuge, nothing is too much trouble, children have a great time and women fully supported from the day they arrive to when they move out. Does not have a hostel feel to the place.”
