IKWRO helps Middle Eastern, North African and Afghan women and girls who are living in the UK.  We speak Farsi, Kurdish, Arabic, Dari, Pashto, Turkish and English.


We can give you confidential advice on issues including domestic violence, “Honour” Based Violence, Forced Marriage, Child Marriage, Female Genital Mutilation, separation and divorce, child custody, housing and benefits.  We don’t tell you what to do or judge you.  We explain the options and help you to make decisions. We can speak with you on the telephone, see you at our London office or meet you at another place which is safe and convenient for you.  We can also run an advice clinic, for example at your local community centre, GP surgery or youth club.  All our services are completely confidential.

Referrals and advocacy

We can refer you to other services, for example housing or immigration advice including to Legal Aid providers and can accompany you to appointments with the police, a GP or others.  We will work with the police, social services and others to keep you safe.  Where necessary we can also translate, write letters for you or speak on your behalf.

Support and counselling

We give emotional support to all clients and offer a free counselling service in Farsi, Kurdish, Arabic and English.


We run training groups explaining women’s rights under UK law.  If you are interested in taking part in these please contact us. We also provide long term support and can link you up to English classes, training, education and employment to help you move on with your life.
