Shantona is currently funded by the Big Lottery Reaching Communities Programme to provide high-quality frontline services for victims of domestic violence. It has been found that domestic violence is under-reported in the South Asian community. To combat this Shantona runs The Asroy Project (meaning Safe Haven) for women, children, young people and families to support them to build resilience against DV.
If you are interested in our support services, this project can provide you with a support service to increase your independence and give you the tools to empower yourself to manage your day-to-day life and make informed decisions about your future. Working primarily with BME, South Asian women, children, young people and families, the project will provide support to help prevent, domestic violence, health inequality and radicalisation.
We are a specialist organisation with over 20 years' experience of working with communities from South Asia providing a number of culturally sensitive activities around parenting, healthy relationships and building resilience.
