#WeDidIt #Cardiff Half Marathon 2016 #RaceAgainstFGM

A team of Bawso's friends, staff and volunteers had completed the 13 miles challenge in the Cardiff Half Marathon 2016 to raise awareness about Female Genital Mutilation. Members of Team Bawso participating in the marathon informed Bawso that they were able to discuss more about FGM with their networks, thanks to the initiave.

Domestic Abuse  

                 Bawso provides secure accomodation and support to Black & Ethnic Minority women 
                                    and children in Wales who are at risk of suffering domestic abuse. 

Human Trafficking  

         Our Diogel Project was set up in 2009 to provide support 
for victims of human trafficking.

Female Genital Mutilation 

We support those who have undergone FGM and work with communities,
policy makers and health professionals to change attitudes towards the practice.

Floating Support

BAWSO provides housing-related support to help people manage their accommodation and live independently and inclusively in the community.
