About US

This peer-to-peer led charity was set up by Yasmin Choudhury. A passionate advocates speaking up on the complexity of surviving and tackling abuse, harassment or trauma. And its specific impact on personal lives, which then might impact one's career, business, wroksplace or educational ambitions.

 

Currently little to non-existent support exists for professional women and men seeking to protect their income and employment in the midsts of, or during or after suffering trauma, domestic abuse or sexual attacks and harrassment.  Post abuse - even less support is available due to Govt funding cuts.

 

No man or woman should ever have to suffer the double whammy of suffering and/or reporting abuse and harrassment,  which later impacts their income streams,  livelihoods or professional and business careers.

 

In the UK, one in four women will experience assualt in her lifetime.  Moreover, minority groups or those with multiple disadvantages are often not reaching their potential due to impact of abuse, which leads to a cycle of complex hardships and poverty.

 

Please follow us on social media as we set up and launch . We are due to be formalised into a charity.
