Supporting women affected by abuse

Muslim Women’s Advisory Council

MWAC is a volunteer run project of Aanchal Women’s Aid in response to tackling Domestic and Sexual Abuse experienced by Muslim Women and the obstacles they face when seeking Islamic Divorce and when they are pressurised to withdraw from prosecutions which have already been in process.

The Service promotes gender equalities and enables women to make safe choices without prejudices.

Run by a Panel of 4 individuals with expertise on domestic abuse, emotional support, Islamic Law, British Law and supported by a Panel of Experts, the Service ensures that women seeking support are directed back into Aanchal Women’s Aid support services and local support so that they are integrated into the community as safe citizens.
