Do you need advice or support?


FORWARD is part of ASCENT, run by the London Violence Against Women and Girls Consortium. Along with 21 other organisations we deliver a range of services for survivors of violence against women and girls.

Services are available at FORWARD offices in Willesden Junction, or on an outreach basis. We accept agency referrals and self referrals.

Our services are non-judgmental. All client information will be kept strictly confidential, unless there are safeguarding issues that must be reported to the relevant authorities.

If you have undergone FGM, here is a list of specialist clinics where you can seek information and support: FGM Specialist Services.
