About Ashiana

Ashiana Sheffield has over 30 years’ experience working with Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugee (BAMER) adults, children and young people fleeing domestic and sexual abuse including forced marriage, human trafficking, female genital mutilation, gang violence and ‘honour’ based violence.

Ashiana believes that everyone has the right to live in a safe environment, free from fear and harm. We have over 30 years’ experience in providing high quality, accessible services, tailored to meet the needs of women who have experienced or is at risk of experiencing violence and abuse.

We provide practical and emotional support in a holistic, gender and culturally sensitive way as well as accommodation for women and children who have survived human trafficking.

Although we are based in Sheffield, we provide support for BAMER women and their children across the country, providing outreach support to male and female survivors of Human Trafficking across Yorkshire and Humberside, North East, East Midlands and the North West England regions.

Staff and Governance

Ashiana has a dedicated and professional team who will aim to assist BAMER women whose lives have been affected by violence and abuse.

Our Trustees are responsible for the governance and efficiency of our service. Their mix of knowledge and skills supports our work and helps drive the organisation forward at a strategic level.


Ashiana is an independent registered charity but we work closely with many other organisations, receiving requests for support directly from victims but also from:

  • Police teams and the Safeguarding Unit
  • Social Care Services (Children and Adult)
  • Children’s Centres and School
  • GPs, Health Visitors, Hospitals and other Health Professionals
  • Housing Teams
  • Probation
  • Youth Offending Service
  • Salvation Army
  • Drug and Alcohol Support Agencies
  • Solicitors
  • Citizens Advice Bureau
  • Other Voluntary Services
  • Community Groups

As part of our support work, we liaise with these and other agencies to ensure the best possible outcome for people needing help with the multiple and complex issues created by violence and abuse. In the large majority of situations, we work only with other agencies with the consent of the service user.
