THE EBONISTA STANCE
Supporting our sisters
We are Hope.
We are Change.
We are The Ebonista Project.
Our mission is to support, empower and advocate for women and children who have been subjected to domestic abuse. We provide a dedicated helpline which is available for those who are facing such trauma.
Our client-led service creates a person-centred plan of support. With our lived and professional experience we will also be able to discuss the various avenues women can take in order to remain safe and live a life free from abuse.
Our aim is to bring a human element in a time where women and children feel isolated, threatened, and unsafe. We provide emotional and practical support to help them on their journey to a life free from abuse.
