Domestic Abuse Counselling

Project Background

Our Domestic Abuse Counselling service was developed in response to a rising need within our community to support victims of domestic abuse. Existing support functions for victims and survivors of domestic abuse, particularly from the Muslim community, are either inaccessible or not sensitive enough of the dilemmas faced by service users from this specific context.

We have an average of 10 clients per month who are undergoing counselling. The pattern of new client referrals and counselling for eligible clients seems to be consistent across the year. Each client is offered up to 6 months free counselling.

The project

As-Suffa Outreach have partnered with Nour DV to provide a faith and culture sensitive counselling service in Birmingham. It is a free service for anyone aged 18 and over who has experienced domestic abuse at any point in their lives. Individuals between 15-18 may also be considered.


To refer yourself or to refer somebody else, please email support@nour-dv.org.uk and complete a form. Alternatively call 0121 285 2777 or email outreach@as-suffa.org with any queries. Assessment interviews are carried out prior to an offer of a counselling slot. The service provider is Khair Therapeutic Services CIC.

Lost for words. For those who are really passionate about studying the deen of Allah. There is no place like As-Suffa. Very hard to explain but one has to experience being around those ulama from as-suffa to understand where i am coming from. May Allah increase their knowledge and give them jannat firdaus for the great work of deen that they are doing.
