We’re proud to work in partnership with other specialist organisations for the benefit of women and children subjected to sexual and domestic violence and abuse.
The partnerships we’re involved in include;
- Ascent, a partnership project that is part of the London Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG) Consortium, delivering a range of services to support women affected by domestic and/or sexual violence. This pan-London collaboration provides specialist counselling and advice services to women and girls affected by domestic/ sexual violence. Services include one-to-one counselling; one-to-one advice; group work, legal advice and training and No Recourse to Public Funds assistance.
- Women’s Safe Engagement and Recovery (WiSER). nia delivers WiSER in partnership with seven specialist organisations in Haringey to women experiencing VAWG and severe and multiple disadvantage and who are frequently excluded from services and/or find it hard to engage with support.
- The Casa Project. nia delivers The Casa Project in partnership with five specialist organisations. The Casa Project provides housing and support for women and children who have experienced domestic abuse, are moving on from refuges and still need support.
The London Holistic Advocacy Wrap Around Service (LHAWAS) ‘No Recourse Fund’ (NRF) has been set up to meet the needs of women and children who are victims of domestic and sexual violence and other forms of gendered violence, including prostitution, trafficking and harmful practices, and who have insecure immigration status subject to no recourse to public funds (NRPF). The aim of this fund is to provide long term holistic advocacy and wrap around support to abused migrant women with NRPF and assisting them with accommodation and subsistence support until their immigration status is regularised or the NRPF condition is lifted.
The LHAWAS NRF is funded by MOPAC (Jan 2020 to Jan 2022). The MOPAC funding supports women living in any London borough or who have now moved into a London borough.
The LHAWAS NRF accepts referrals from statutory (only in cases where such referral is not in place of an existing statutory duty) and non-statutory organisations that assist abused women and children as well as directly from women (including single women and women with children) escaping violence who self-refer.
