To reduce the barriers that BME victims face in accessing statutory provision we train practitioners on the needs and experiences of BME women, and we work with BME communities in Wales to challenge harmful traditional practices and change the attitudes that allow abuse to continue and go unreported. 

People from minority ethnic backgrounds often report a lack of understanding of their needs by statutory and voluntary services. They also experience prejudice and judgmental attitudes. At the same time, professionals tell us that they need to understand the specific needs of BME clients and have appropriate tools to support them. 

Bawso’s diverse staffing base is a resource, not only in terms of providing points of commonality and identification with service users but also in terms of the wide range of knowledge shared between co-workers of different ethnic, religious and professional backgrounds. Many employees have developed wide skill bases and have multiple cultural competences.

Our Staff and Survivors have delivered  training sessions for professionals every year including  Social Services, Health, Education,  Fire and Rescue Service, Police, Homelessness, third sector organisations for over 25 years.
