Domestic Violence and Hate Crime in Waltham Forest


In April 2008, we were commissioned by the London Borough of Waltham Forest to run the project 'Report it'. The project was formally launched six months later on 30 September 2009. Under this project, we provide specialist legal advice and advocacy services to the victims of domestic violence and hate crime in Waltham Forest. Since its inception, the project has been a huge success.

     

Other Advice Services

 


We also provide legal advice and other services including representations and appeals in the following areas:

 
1. Welfare Benefits
2. Debt
3. Housing
5. Community Care

Training & Support Services


We provide training and support services to the local community. At present, we are working on three projects:

 

1. NASS (National Asylum Support Service): We provided advice and ancillary services to the newly arrived asylum seekers.


2. ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages): The classes are held twice a week with a flexible schedule.


3. Health Advocacy: In partnership with the Community Health Project Walthamstow, Leyton and Leytonstone Primary Care Trust (PCT), a Refugee Support Psychologist visits the Refugee Advice Centre periodically to provide support and service to our clients.


 Domestic Violence


According to a research, 'domestic violence' currently claims the lives of around two women a week, and affects millions more people. Therefore, we are determined to prevent domestic violence happening or recurring, to protect and support its victims, and to bring offenders to justice. read more
