Fact Sheets

Savera UK are the leading charity tackling culturally-specific abuse in the UK. We understand that the areas we provide support for are often misunderstood or under-represented. ‘Honour’ based abuse in the UK is so hidden that many feel ‘it can’t happen here’.

We are here both to support those who are survivors of this abuse and also seek to eradicate it through training and education of those who can help break the cycle.

The number of cases of ‘honour’ based abuse, forced marriage and female genital mutilation reported to the police has increased by 53% since 2014.*

Through working with Savera UK you can join our campaign to eradicate harmful practices.
