All women have the right to live a life free from violence. Safety4Sisters works to support migrant women across the North West who have experienced gender-based violence and who have no recourse to public funds or state benefits. We secure greater protection, safety and support for migrant women through campaigning and action. We run a group bringing together migrant women for support, community and consciousness raising, and we provide advocacy, emergency accommodation and essentials where necessary.
The women Safety4Sisters work with are often destitute, have been turned away from mainstream domestic violence refuge and are marginalised by society because of their race, gender and immigration status. They are strong and intelligent, loving and resourceful and they are at the centre of everything we do. Safety4Sisters will be on hand to share information about their work and will be showing a short 10th anniversary film.
