What makes Bawso different?
Bawso is a BME led organisation that has been providing practical and emotional support to BME victims of domestic abuse, sexual violence, human trafficking, female genital mutilation and forced marriage in Wales for over 25 years. Our programmes contribute to the prevention of violence against women. Each year, through our protection and support services, we have supported more than 6,000 adults and children and developed initiatives to counter re-victimisation. We have the continuous task to raise funds in order to keep our pattern-specialist provision of crisis services for communities open.
At Bawso, we ensure that the survivor’s voice is embedded into our activities and services we provide. Our service users are fully involved in all facets of the life of Bawso. For example, if one is accommodated at a refuge, they are given a role to play in running it and supporting other residents. They are further consulted on service development. Some of the survivors serve as recruitment panel members, volunteers or paid staff while others sit on the Board after they leave Bawso service.
