We have built trusted relationships with local services which helps to keep our clients at the centre of multi agency working.
"I am really passionate about the work Shenel and the team at Ebonista are doing to support women affected by domestic abuse. Their approach to working with Black African and Caribbean women is unrivalled in the sector."
"So many organisations claim to work with “BAME” women - but a 'one size fits all approach' doesn't really work. Ebonista understands their clients' needs and provides services that are tailored for the communities they serve"
I want to thank The Ebonista Project for the support you’ve provided two teenagers who were affected by domestic abuse
Ebonista are truly committed to supporting families, they go above and beyond, The team are empathetic, understanding and to devoted to your wellbeing
In our work with Ebonista we have found them to be extremely professional, always anticipating needs and seeking out ways to help the most vulnerable who often struggle to access support. Shenel is so dedicated and operates with such excellence. It's a pleasure to work with The Ebonista Project.

Feedback from women who have been supported by the Ebonista Team and attended our online programmes
"You brought that human element at a time where I felt so isolated and alone. Knowing I had someone to talk to who genuinely cares about my safety and wellbeing made all the difference."
“I have found it hard to trust Professionals because of past injustices. The Ebonista Project have made such a difference by being able to speak with someone who looks like me and understands my culture”
“Thank you to the Ebonista team for helping me to find my voice”
“Our Facilitator was a breath of fresh air. I wish we had more sessions throughout the week, I really looked forward to it. I learnt so much on all different types of men, and now I have the knowledge of spotting any red flags, abuse, etc in the future with men. Thank you so much Ebonista, it’s changed my life”
“Really enjoyed the course and found it useful. I’m looking forward to joining the next one to compete the sessions I missed”
“The Freedom Programme was delivered so professionally but with a fun element to a tough subject”
“My facilitator was just so easy and relaxed to talk to and open up to and understood everything we said about our abuse”
An amazing and wonderful group of women
A brilliant service, 100 out of 100! I love the encouragement I get and the regular contact
Thanks for your support Shenel, you really helped me to know when someone is trying to manipulate me
The freedom programme was helpful I now understand so much more about emotional abuse
These women make you feel so at ease when you go into the office. A real sisterhood!
For the first time in a long time I feel listened to and like my feelings actually matter. So many services have failed to hear me - thank you Ebonista
I learnt so much from Own My Life especially around how the brain processes trauma - it’s life changing
As soon as I saw the hub flyer I got such a warm feeling inside and felt relieved to be able to speak with women who looked like me and who understood my culture and background. Representation matters!
From my first call to the helpline I felt so supported and valued. I’ve struggled for years to break free from my abuser but my Support Worker was empowering and helped me find my strength
It feels like I have a team of sisters cheering me on, always on hand when I’m feeling low
