The police recorded 599,549 domestic abuse-related crimes in the year ending March 2018. This was an increase of 23% from the previous year. This in part reflects police forces improving their identification and recording of domestic abuse incidents as crimes and an increased willingness by victims to come forward.
We endeavour to eliminate the complacent attitude towards domestic violence in Muslim communities by educating, creating awareness and campaigning against DV via seminars, community talks and workshops. Our final phase is to provide an aftercare package for the DV survivors and their children to include social and psychological support. Our philanthropic motivation and ambition for the outreach to victims of DV is rooted within the teachings of Islam, however, we will be accessible for all and there will be no racial, religious or gender discrimination of DV victims.
