Case Study: Angelou Centre Supporting BAME Victims of Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence

Case studies

This case study focuses on a Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic (BAME) women's centre in Newcastle, that supports survivors of domestic abuse. They are one of only a few centres in the UK providing a holistic service to women from a range of ethnicities. In this case study, we see that BAME women are some of the most vulnerable victims of abuse and violence and at the same time they experience multiple barriers to services which are meant to help and support them. The Angelou Centre provides a range of culturally appropriate services, which are informed by the barriers of race and gender that BAME women face in accessing services.
