From a place of lived experience, Al Masaar has always supported women experiencing domestic of all forms and raising awareness of this looks like for ethnic minorities. Out partnership work with Police Scotland's Forth Valley Diversity Officer, PC Helen Auld has been by Farah where she has advocated for women to access legal and justice support. We regularly post on social media about domestic abuse and mark 16 Days of Action with online and offline discussions. Chair Day is a public event we hold to difficult conversations on the topic.
We have previously worked with Amina MWRC to inform and empower women about gender based violence. We have a confidential WhatsApp group called 'Safe, Single and Stigmatised' for any women in Forth Valley looking for peer support. We have links with Shakti Forthvalley Support, Committed to Ending Abuse and ForthValley Rape Crisis. We recently began support from Healed Scars who offer specialist courses to support and empower women who have experienced domestic abuse.
