BAWSO provides support to women and their children who are experiencing or threatened with Domestic Abuse as well as delivering a wide range of support services throughout Wales. The specialist services provision are Forced marriage; Honour based violence, FGM, trafficking and prostitution.
We work with the women to ensure that they progress towards re-establishing their lives and moving on to better housing and life opportunities.
For many years BAWSO has supported women and children with no recourse to public funds. To date the organisation is the single largest provider of support services for such women and children in Wales despite the introduction of the Sojourner project by the Home Office in November 2009.
The Sojourner project was set up to financially support women with no recourse to public funds during their immigration application process period.
