Those who manage to escape honour-based abuse and forced marriage risk becoming isolated from their immediate/extended families and communities.
Karma Nirvana is a charity enabling victims and/or survivors on this journey in providing empathy, support and options with these life changing decisions.
The Survivor Ambassador Panel was established in 2013 and enables survivors to come together in a safe space to share stories with like-minded individuals, reduce isolation and develop a new emerging community. It is for those who wish to rebuild their lives, often in absence of family or living with fractured relationships.
The panel is ever evolving, shaping and informing policy and practice. Many members embrace opportunities to speak at events and training sessions, as well as share their stories in the media. This website is dedicated to growing this community's membership.
Through a digital community dedicated to conversation and support, regular newsletters, conferences, residential programmes and campaigns for your rights, we enable survivors from all backgrounds to find a sense of belonging, understanding and a way to move forward together.
Our vision is to empower survivors to live fulfilled, independent lives embracing all the rights and freedoms of life in Britain.
