Share publication

This report documents research findings relevant to understanding the experiences of South Asian women who have survived domestic violence and who have No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF), the “forgotten women”. This study was sponsored by Oxfam GB, with additional contributions from Care Services Improvement Partnership North West (CSIP NW) and the University of Huddersfield. The research was undertaken by Saheli, a specialist South Asian Domestic Violence Project based in Manchester, working with women with No Recourse to Public Funds in crisis and needing refuge. The overall aim of the study was to contribute to policy-making and service provision for such women.
