Specialist BAME Support

We are here to support you. We understand what you may be experiencing and we can help.

Remember, you are never alone.

If you are experiencing, or have experienced domestic abuse, sexual abuse, rape and/or trauma, we’re here to help.

Remember, you are never alone. Recognising that you are experiencing violence and abuse is the first step and accessing support can help you to decide what you can do.

Freeva’s dedicated BAME support team works alongside our accredited Helpline team to provide support. Your specialist worker will discuss all your support options. We will act as a point of contact to ensure your support needs are met.

Our Specialist BAME Support service can help with:

Women's Programme

Listening Service

You may want to talk to someone about what is or has happened to you.


Discover your options depending on your situtation; from legal advice to finding accomodation.

Decision Making

Empower you with knowledge to enable you to make decisions about the future.

Safety Planning

With our services, we can discuss a safety plan to help you feel safe again.

Specialist Support

At Freeva, we can provide specialist one-to-one support relevant to your circumstances.


Discuss your reporting options if you are considering reporting any incident to the police.

Reporting to the police

You do not have to report to the police to get support from us.

If you don’t want to report, we are here to support you with any emotional needs, guidance, safety planning and help you access any more relevant information.

If you are considering reporting to the police, we can help you understand how the criminal justice process works. We can talk you through what will happen if you do report to the police, what will happen if you report anonymously or the importance and process of forensic DNA retrieval.

*There are times that on our Helpline and in all our Domestic Abuse services, we will report to the police, with or without consent, if the risk to a client, child or third party, is significantly high.

How to get help

We provide our Specialist BAME Support service to anyone who has experienced rape and/or sexual assault living in the Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland areas, and domestic violence living in Leicestershire County.

If you live outside of the Leicestershire or Rutland area, please contact the National Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0808 2000 247.
