peopledomestic violence and minority groups


It is important to realise that women from minority ethnic groups, for whom English is not their first language, may find it more difficult to disclose domestic violence.  This may be due to a range of cultural differences which prevents a woman seeking help and also the language barrier faced when accessing support services.  Women’s Aid has produced a range of leaflets in Urdu, Arabic, Chinese, Hindi and Portuguese and the 24-hour helpline now has access to translators through a language line.
