//Karma Nirvana advocacy service

Karma Nirvana provide face to face practical, emotional and advocacy support to victims of Honour based abuse and Forced marriage – in West Yorkshire.

About Karma Nirvana

We believe having a face to face advocate available to organisations and statutory agencies to refer victims to, can enable us to collaboratively build a multi-agency support network ensuring that the victims and survivors feel that they are safeguarded, understood and receiving consistent, ongoing support.

What we offer:

  • Face to face support for victims and survivors of Forced marriage and honour-based abuse.
  • Confidential emotional support using an empathic, non-judgmental, victim focussed approach.
  • Experts that recognise the risks of these issues and can assess accordingly.
  • Assistance accessing relevant services/organisations using a multi-agency approach with both voluntary and statutory organisations in West Yorkshire.
  • Someone who can speak to professionals on the victim/survivor’s behalf when they feel they cannot themselves.
  • A professional who can advocate to professionals in order to ensure specific risks are understood and handled correctly in accordance with the statutory guidelines.
