The Latin American Women‚Äôs Rights Service (LAWRS) is launching its latest report: ‚ÄúThe Unheard Workforce: Experiences of Latin American migrant women in cleaning, hospitality and domestic work”¬†¬†


35 year ago, we started our work in a time where domestic violence was only physical abuse and we increased our services accordingly to the development of policies and legislation through the years. We are proud to follow the steps of amazing Latin American women who came before us and we hope to do our part for the ones to come. (more…)

Last year, our volunteers contributed with more than 900 hours of counselling, 2370 hours of case and administrative work, 715 hours of interpreting, and 1800 hours organising groups and integration activities.

THANK YOU¬†for making such a difference! (more…)

You can download the template response here.
Step Up Migrant Women campaign launched on the 1st of November to demand a separation of immigration control and victims’ right to safety and protection.
Together, we reached almost half a million people in social media with messages in support of victims and survivors . (more…)

Migrant women facing violence have the right to seek help and support, regardless of their immigration status, but often are more afraid of facing deportation. All women have the right to live free from violence.

Step Up Migrant Women UK seeks to establish a firewall protecting victims’ rights. (more…)
