In May 29th 1998 the 'Violence on the Edge' research and training pack for working with ethnic minority communities, was officially launched in Belfast.

The response to the launch was overwhelming.  Over 150 representatives from the main statutory bodies including the Northern Ireland Office, RUC and the DHSS as well as from a range of voluntary organisations attended.  The launch, which took place just over a year from the start of the project, truly highlighted the importance and impact of the project.  What began as a small scale research and internal training project grew to be a  project which in the words of Joan Harbinson, Chair of the Commission for Racial Equality

 

"places Women’s Aid Federation Northern Ireland as a role model in service provision to ethnic minority communities in Northern Ireland."

 

Funding was secured to enable this one year project to be developed to the next phase and implement the research recommendations.

TheEquality Project

Women’s Aid Federation Northern Ireland’s Equality projects aims to develop the promotion of equality, diversity and the rights of women and children from ethnic minorities, disabled groups and other minorities who are at risk of domestic violence.  The Equality Worker facilitates training around these issues within Women’s Aid and also with relevant statutory and voluntary agencies.
