Black Women's Rape Action Project - or BWRAP - offer fortnightly self-help services for women and girls seeking asylum from rape and other abuse. In-depth support service is available by appointment only.
BWRAP are recognised for their expertise addressing the sexism and racism women of colour face from the judicial system, the police, immigration services, benefit agencies, healthcare institutions and other professionals. They raise the issue of rape, other sexual violence and racist attacks among grassroots groups and community organisations. BWRAP aims to make visible and address the specific needs and experiences of Black and immigrant women including asylum seekers; break down the barriers between women from different nationalities and backgrounds; and empower women to speak out and get the resources and protection they are entitled to. Volunteers give self-help support and information to rape survivors in detention centres and prisons.
