Kiran Support Services was set up in 1990 to meet the needs of women and children from the Indian sub-continent experiencing domestic violence and abuse.
Since its inception the Project has expanded its services to meet the needs of the wider Asian community and now provides a holistic range of services to its diverse client group.
Kiran Support Services believes that all women and children have the right to live free from violence and the right to leave a home or relationship where the risk of such violence exits.
Women experiencing domestic violence can be abused physically, emotionally, mentally, sexually or exploited financially. These abuses can arise in personal relationships as well as within extended families.
The services provided by Kiran Support Service are provided in a non-judgemental, non-directive form, in a culturally sensitive way, thus empowering women to make their own choices and decisions and to regain control of their lives.
Kiran Support Services provides safe, temporary accommodation to Asian women and their children and is the only agency of its kind in the London Borough of Waltham Forest. This is a service provided by Asian women for Asian women and children
“To provide a safe, nurturing space and resource of high quality, where Asian women overcoming Domestic Violence (and their children) can identify options and develop skills that enable them to take control of their lives emotionally, financially and practically”
