The Flowhesion Foundation is excited to have been nominated by the Ministry of Justice, through the Office of the Lancashire Police Crime Commissioner, Clive Grunshaw to offer specialist counseling services to bamer communities in Lancashire around DV and mental health issues presented by the current pandemic. The invaluable funding will help us meet the additional costs which have been incurred during a period of adaptation to our services in response to the coronavirus pandemic as well as assisting us to cope with any increases in counseling demand as a result of lockdown.
“The pandemic continues to put extra pressures on families and relationships and whilst that should never be an excuse for any kind of violence, the reality is that some people will be affected by abuse,” Mr Grunshaw added. “We have fantastic local services and I am really pleased to be able to offer them this additional support.”
Said the director of The Flowhesion Foundation, Imam Abdul Hafeez Siddique; ‘ The Foundation has a strong team of BACP registered counsellors with years of experience engaging with minority communities on issues of abuse, mental health and loss. The lockdown has put much pressure on the services we deliver. We are therefore delighted that we can continue to offer these specialist counseling services in a culturally appropriate manner to Lancashire bamer women during these unprecedented times. We wish to thank Clive and his team for making this possible’.
