Savera UK is one of the leading charities tackling culturally-specific abuse in the UK, including forced marriage and female genital mutilation. It campaigns to eliminate ‘honour’-based abuse and harmful practices and provide life-saving services to those at risk, regardless of age, culture, sexuality or gender.
‘Savera’ means ‘new beginning’ in Hindi, a theme that is symbolic of the support the charity provides to those who are at risk of harmful practices. Since launching its one-to-one service in 2017, Savera UK has supported hundreds of clients out of abusive environments into their ‘Savera’. We help survivors of ‘honour’-based abuse and harmful practices to rebuild their lives with emotional and practical support, helping them to gain economic independence and move forward into their future with confidence.
If you, or someone you know, are at risk of forced marriage, ‘honour’ based abuse or female genital mutilation, you can contact us for confidential, practical and culturally sensitive advice. We also provide support and advice for professionals and practitioners.
Whatever your worry or concern, please contact us on our helpline 0800 107 0726 (operates weekdays 9am - 5pm).
