Muslim Womens Network
We operate a national specialist faith and culturally sensitive helpline that is confidential and non-judgmental, which offers information, support, guidance and referrals for those who are suffering from or at risk of abuse or facing problems on a range of issues.
Although our reach is primarily Muslim women, the helpline will accept calls from and support women of any faith or no faith. For example, the culturally sensitive nature of the helpline could easily support Asian women of other faiths. Men who are concerned about women and girls should also call the helpline.
If men and boys need support, for example, at risk of forced marriage, then they should also call the helpline.

Paladin Stalking Service
Paladin is a trauma-informed service established to assist high risk victims of stalking in England and Wales. Our unique team of accredited Independent Stalking Advocacy Caseworkers (ISACs) ensure that high risk victims of stalking are supported and that a coordinated community response is developed locally to keep victims and their children safe.
Stalking is a pattern of repeated and persistent unwanted behaviour that is intrusive and engenders fear, it is when one person becomes fixated or obsessed with another and the attention is unwanted. Threats may not be made but victims may still feel scared. Importantly threats are not required for the criminal offence of stalking to be prosecuted.
Safe and Well Visits
Kent Fire and Rescue Service (KFRS) can provide a free Safe and Well visit to anyone who feels unsafe in their home; where there has been domestic abuse, an arson threat, if the perpetrator has a history of arson of firesetting behaviour or if there are no working smoke alarms.
We can offer a letterbox seal, external mailbox, smoke alarms and home fire safety advice – the service is completely free.
0800 923 7000

Kent Homeless Connect helps vulnerable people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
We offer a network of specialist services that prevents people from losing their homes. If people have already become homeless we help them to access and maintain accommodation.
