About Safety4Sisters

Safety4Sisters was established in Manchester in 2009 to address the exclusion of migrant women (particularly those with ‘no recourse to public funds’) from the most basic rights of safety and protection.

We work toward this through our policy work – highlighting strategies and practices that exclude migrant women from protection within statutory and voluntary provision; through educating and challenging organisations and the public to uphold the human rights of migrant women – and bearing witness and documenting where this does not happen; and through the creation of spaces for sisterhood in which the individual stories of migrant women – their experiences of disempowerment and struggle for survival – are transformed into collective stories and collective action.
