Supporting women affected by abuse

Advice and advocacy

We provide advice and information to women affected by domestic abuse on benefits and welfare rights, immigration issues (including no recourse to legal funds and the rights of non-British citizens), children’s and young people’s issues, legal support, housing and financial support.


Our staff are happy to support local organisations (schools, health services, social services, police and law enforcement, etc.) by discussing our work and promoting awareness about domestic abuse. Please email us at if you’d like to discuss how Aanchal can work with your organisation.


Aanchal team members are also available on NU SOUND RADIO (on 92FM) every Tuesday between 12pm and 1pm. Tune in to listen to useful advice and listen to the experiences of others. Topics we’ve covered on our radio show include forced marriage, children’s issues, and immigration support. If you’d like to suggest a topic for us to cover on the show, please email us at
