The Amina Scheme

Amina -for survivors of sexual violence. Part of Eaves' Alice Project

Part of Eaves' Alice Project

Amina is a ground breaking peer-led service for women aged 18+ who have experienced sexual violence. Through its befriending scheme Amina provides support for women who have been raped, sexually assaulted or abused at any time in their lives.

Amina works by training volunteers who have survived and overcome experiences of sexual violence to support others facing similar experiences. After the programme of training is complete, we carefully pair women together so they can meet regularly. This helps to reduce feelings of isolation and ensures women have the appropriate support to address a range of emotional and practical challenges so that they can rebuild their lives. Amina brings a fresh, innovative and service user-generated approach to working with and responding to sexual violence.
