Sistah Space work with African heritage women & girls who've experienced domestic or sexual abuse or who have lost a loved one to domestic violence.
Many of their survivors are from different sections of the African & Caribbean community, including the Rastafarian/ Grassroots community - who are often on the fringes of society. Rastafarian women are among those who have the highest rate of underreporting. Their specialised service seeks to assist those who are apprehensive about going to mainstream services without support, such as the police and other statutory services.
They provide advice and support as well as practical help by providing hygiene products such as sanitary pads, panties, bras, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soaps and other essential items (much of which have been donated by the local community).
Their mission is to encourage African heritage survivors/victims to report abuse by providing a safe cultural venue for victims to disclose abuse in a confidential environment, and to encourage community integration.
