What makes us different?
Shantonas diverse team reaches out to isolated women, building trusting relationships and empowering women and families to be confident, independent and resilient, and to tackle inequality. Our team has led programmes to improve community cohesion, one such example of this is the “Strong mother, stronger daughters” project.
At Shantona we challenge inequality, discrimination and cultural bad practices, addressing taboo issues, such as DV and CSE through our services. As a result, women have developed leadership skills, their own voice and have become empowered to influence and make changes. This has been achieved by communicating culturally sensitive and strong messages out to the wider community concerning issues which would otherwise remain hidden and go unreported. As a result of our integrated efforts, women are now sharing their experiences around DV and CSE publicly, influencing faith groups including mosques.
Working at the heart of the community to engage those most at risk and develop bespoke support services to improve the lives of those most in need.
