About Us

Rosa's Commitment and Services

At Rosa, our mission is to support women in need across Enfield, Haringey, and Islington, as well as women throughout London. We focus on addressing crucial issues such as domestic abuse, homelessness, unemployment, gender discrimination, and poverty. Many of our service users are women of Black or Minority Ethnic heritage. Our goal is to empower these women to rebuild their lives, enabling them to thrive in a world free from abuse and inequality.

Challenges Faced by Our Service Users

Women who use our services often endure emotional, physical, economic, and/or sexual abuse, compounded by other inequalities such as poor housing, unemployment, language barriers, and gender discrimination, including female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage. These complex challenges necessitate a wide range of tailored services.

Our Services

We offer specialized advice, advocacy, counseling, volunteering opportunities, employability support, financial and digital training, and assistance in setting up small businesses. Our aim is to help individuals aged 18 to 65 overcome their problems, maximize their skills and abilities, broaden their horizons, and develop confidence and resilience.

Mission Statement

We are dedicated to providing professional, comprehensive assistance and unwavering support to racialized women facing challenges such as domestic abuse, homelessness, and unemployment. Our services include advocacy, mentorship, emotional support, career development, educational training, and job placement, all aimed at helping these women overcome obstacles and build a brighter future. We believe every woman deserves a life free from violence, a safe home, and the opportunity for financial independence.

Vision Statement

Our vision is a world where every woman can live free from violence, with the security of a stable home and the means to support herself and her family. We strive for a society where women are empowered, independent, and confident in their ability to overcome adversity.
