Support and Wellbeing
Following the award of
National Lottery Community Fund grant funding,
ANBU UK are proud to launch our first survivor support package, called
Transitions and Wellbeing Project
We’ve made great strides over the past few months partnering with local communities and organisations who have continually supported us and survivors through signposting. It’s now, with warmth and gratitude, that this year, we’re able to provide our very own ANBU UK survivor support package for survivors from Tamil speaking communities. We’ve thought long and hard about how best to support survivors who are navigating and balancing the wonderfully complex cultures of our home in the West and our heritage with more Eastern influences. This had moved us to design support provisions that effectively reflects both cultures.
We decided to offer group therapies, drawing on our Tamil cooperative roots and community based approaches, living and working in collectives, with the vision that by empowering collectives, we can support individual growth. The group therapies are an opportunity to experience the Tamil community in a safe and supportive environment whilst taking care of your individual needs from the impact of trauma.
