What Does Amina Do?

Amina MWRC provides support and resources for Muslim and BME women in Scotland. BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) and Muslim women face many barriers in society, from healthcare to housing, making them one of the most disadvantaged groups in the UK. We operate as an intersectional charity, acknowledging that many Muslim and BME women are discriminated against on multiple levels including ethnicity, gender and religion. Our organisation provides help, advice and support to enable Muslim and BME women to access opportunities and live the life they deserve.

Amina advocates for women and provides support on a variety of topics including immigration law, domestic violence, employment and adult learning. You may contact our helpline at 0808 801 0301 for the following services:
