Panahghar provides safe emergency and supported refuge in Coventry and Leicester for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic survivors of domestic, sexual and gendered abuse.

The refuges offer not only accommodation but also emotional support, legal advice and practical help. Out staff work hard to provide a safe and non-judgemental service to support you and your needs.

At Panahghar, we provide safe refuge in the form of shared accommodation and/or self-contained flats.  Shared accommodation may consist of your own bedroom with a shared bathroom, lounge, kitchen and dining area. A self–contained flat may have either 1 or 2 bedrooms with their own kitchen, lounge/dining area and bathroom.

In Leicester, we have specific refuge projects in the Hope Project and our Step Forward Project.

If you are in an abusive situation and are looking for support or a place to go, please call our helpline on 0800 055 6519.
