If you or somebody you know is suffering from or has suffered from abuse, then there is help available. At Nour, we are currently able to provide you with free access to qualified counsellors who can provide counselling to help heal from the trauma of abuse, Qualified Legal Advisors to advise on any legal queries, Support workers who can provide emotional support and practical support to help access services, financial assistance through various hardship funds, including Nour’s Safe Haven Zakat Fund. We have qualified Muslim advisors who can help with any advice in relation to the abuse you have suffered, including spiritual abuse, rights in marriage, queries around divorce, etc. We recognise that often the misinformed ‘Islamic’ advice received by survivors can perpetuate the abuse and collude with abusers, and thus we provide a service where qualified Muslim advisors can refute such approaches and challenge the structures and narratives that condone abuse in our communities.
Please use our Advisors Contact Form to contact any of our advisors. If you or someone you know is facing immediate danger, please call 999 and ask for the relevant emergency service.
If you are currently in danger then this is a case of emergency and you should call 999 for ambulance, police or both.
Currently our capacity to help and support victims of DV is limited at Nour, thus there are other charities and organisations which can offer other types of support, including how to stay safe, access to legal support, and emergency refuge accommodation. They can also offer advice if you know of someone close to you who is suffering from DV. To view these charities and organisations click the relevant section below.
