WELCOME TO SISTAH SPACE
Sistah Space is a community based initiative that supports African heritage women and girls.
Founded in October/Novermber 2015, Sistah Space was created to bridge the gap in domestic abuse services for grassroots and all other African heritage women and girls.
We work with our local community and services to raise awareness of domestic and sexual abuse.

WHY SISTAH SPACE?
Valerie Forde and her 22-month old daughter were viciously murdered by Valerie's ex-partner (also the baby's father) in 2014. This tragic event, which highlighted the need for an organisation to tackle domestic abuse in African heritage families, was the catalyst for Sistah Space.
Alongside expertise in domestic abuse services, Sistah Space understands the specific needs of African heritage families. This means we can provide a safe space for anyone who is concerned about domestic abuse.
