IKWRO (Iranian And Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation)

IKWRO helps Middle Eastern and Afghan women and girls who are living in the UK.  We speak Farsi, Kurdish, Arabic, Dari, Pashto, Turkish, and English.

IKWRO offers women and girls confidential advice on issues including domestic violence, “Honour” Based Violence, Forced Marriage, Child Marriage, Female Genital Mutilation, separation and divorce, child custody, housing and benefits. We don’t tell you what to do or judge you. We explain the options and help you to make decisions. We can speak with you on the telephone, see you at our London office or meet you at another place which is safe and convenient for you. We can also run an advice clinic, for example at your local community centre, GP surgery or youth club. All our services are completely confidential.
