About Us

Over 10 Years of Serving the Most Vulnerable


Humraaz is an independent organisation founded in 2002 and registered as a charity in 2005.

We provide sanctuary to survivors of all forms of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG), including Domestic Abuse, Forced Marriage and/or ‘so called’ Honour Based Violence

Our culturally sensitive, linguistically diverse, confidential service provides holistic support to Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) women and their children, based on skilled and comprehensive assessments of their individual needs and risks.

Survivors receive a bespoke package of support, tailored to their individual needs which may include support around personal, social, financial, educational and emotional needs. We seek to support the re-integration of BME women and girls into the community through ensuring the safety of women and their children and developing and supporting resilience and independence.

Humraaz empowers survivors of VAWG by managing risk and teaching life skills which enable them to become independent take control of their lives and determine their own future. Women are encouraged to participate in challenging and stimulating activities within a safe environment, the ultimate goal being to build self-esteem and confidence. This develops their ability to access services and make the most of opportunities to provide their own financial security.
