Panahghar provides free dedicated BAME multi lingual support, advice and advocacy and access to safe refuge for survivors and their families of domestic abuse, sexual abuse or gendered abuse in Coventry and Leicester. If English is not your first language, contact us on 0800 055 6519.

Through this helpline we support survivors of domestic abuse, sexual and other gendered abuse by working to relieve physical or mental distress and breaking down barriers and stigmas through safe refuge, advice, therapy, outreach, training and more.

This helpline is available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week so know we are always there for you when you need it.

Remember, if you or someone you know needs immediate help and it is an emergency, please call 999. If you cannot speak, wait to be connected, then press 55 and the police will attend. 

We also provide other helplines run in partnership with different organisations that may suit your needs:

"I would have had a lot of language barriers and building up the trust was hard. My support worker can understand me easily and I have confidence in sharing my life story. Our support workers are from similar cultural backgrounds and understand my background very deeply. It was easy to trust out support workers and the team of Panahghar to share what we have been through." Domestic Abuse Survivor
