The Helpline is a listening ear and signposting service for Muslim and BME women across Scotland. We run the Helpline Monday to Friday – 10am – 4pm for any Muslim-identified and BME women. It is free from mobiles and landlines and will not appear on your phone bill. All calls are strictly confidential and non-judgemental; we always deal with clients in a faith and culturally-sensitive manner.
If you need to talk to someone or have a problem and don’t know where to go the Amina Helpline can help you get started by listening to you and signpost you to organisations that may be able to offer help and advice for your problem.
The top ten reasons women call us are:
Child Sexual Abuse
Agencies seeking support with signposting on behalf of their clients
The helpline is funded by the Scottish Government and we have recently increased the number of volunteers, adding to the range of language and telephone skills. We can help women in English, Arabic, Punjabi, Urdu. Any other languages can be accessed using a translating service as required.
During Helpline hours, a ‘Live Chat’ button will appear on the bottom-right side of your screen anywhere on the Amina MWRC website.
You may have to click ‘OK’ about the collection of website cookies, at the bottom of the site before the chat box appears.
