SBS provides a range of advice and support services to enable black and minority women to gain the knowledge and confidence they need to assert their human rights. We provide general and specialist advice on gender-related issues such as domestic violence, sexual violence, forced marriage, honour killings and their intersection with the criminal justice, immigration and asylum systems, health, welfare rights, homelessness and poverty.
Our advice and advocacy work is also supported by a range of other support activities to help women overcome their isolation and build their self esteem and skills.

Our campaigns are an essential component of our work and stem directly out of the daily experiences of the women who use our services. Our campaigns either focus on the circumstances and issues involved in a particular case or highlight broader issues of public interest in respect of justice and equality.
