About this cause

About our cause

Latin American Women’s Aid (LAWA) supports women and children fleeing from domestic violence through advice, advocacy and emergency accommodation. We empower women to lead an independent life, be aware of their rights and provide their children with a hopeful future.

Besides an Advice & Information center our organisation has been running a women’s refuge since 1987. It is the only woman’s refuge in the UK providing Latin American women and their children with support in their language. We have also recently started a new pilot ‘Family Outreach Support’ project which assists women in meeting the needs and aspirations of their children and empowers them in their role as mothers. This project is currently run on a voluntary basis. Additionally we also provide regular workshops, social groups and activities around town for mothers and their children.

Specialist ethnic minority services like ours are necessary because they offer safe accommodation, support in overcoming language barriers and culturally sensitive service provision to Latin American women and their children fleeing from domestic violence. Through our support provision we also challenge institutional racism, patriarchy and other significant barriers that woman from a Black & Ethnic Minority background face such as social isolation and economic exclusion.
