Shakti Women's Aid

We have a Shakti Women's Aid Worker based in our offices. Shakti's Dundee service provides support to BME women including trans women who are experiencing/fleeing Domestic Abuse from their Partners/husband, ex-partner and other members of the household living in living in the in and around Dundee, Perth and Aberdeen city. We are also able to support women at risk of forced marriage and so called honour based violence.

We provide a confidential service. We will not speak to family members and friends. Our service understands the problems and difficulties faced by BME women and provides specialist support.

Our staff are bilingual and we have access to interpreters.

We will:
  • Listen to what you say
  • Help you to be as safe as possible
  • Explain your options and your rights
  • Help you decide what to do (if anything)
  • Help you feel stronger in herself
  • Tell you about other help you can get
  • Help you get support for your children
  • Give you practical help: for example to find somewhere safe to stay or to get a solicitor or health care; or legal protection; or to apply for benefits (money) you are due
  • If you need to leave the area/community you live in, we have links with Women's Aid all over the UK
