Supporting Individuals At Risk

Collaboration through research and partnerships is essential to our fight to eradicate harmful practices and support those at risk.

 

Research
Research allows us to gain vital knowledge and insight into the services available for survivors of harmful practices and those who are still at risk. This research is only possible with the support of academic and professional partners.

We have worked with Chester University, Cheshire Police and the Crime Commissioner, as well as the University of Liverpool to support research into the specialist help available to survivors to those at risk from FGM, HBA and other harmful practices. 

The knowledge and insights drawn from these collaborations allows us to ensure that our services reach those who need us, when and where they need us.

 

Partnerships
Our partnerships take many forms, from working together with professional agencies on education and training projects, to working with brands, media, patrons and celebrity ambassadors to raise awareness and funds to support our work and campaigns.

 

Since our establishment, we have partnered with many organisations, including The University of Liverpool, RASA, Merseyside Refugee & Asylum Seekers Pre & Post Natal Support Group, Merseyside Police, Brook, Women’s Health Information and Support Centre and Women Reach Women CIC.
