Save Southall Black Sisters
Many hundreds of migrant women who have suffered domestic violence and were facing removal from the UK, have benefited from the advice and support provided by SBS. SBS have over the years helped numerous women facing removal from the UK after leaving their violent partners, set up anti-deportation campaigns, all of them successful.

Southall Black Sisters under threat of closure
We are writing to you to request support for our organisation. We are currently facing threat of closure as a result of our local authority’s (Ealing) decision to withdraw our funding as of April 2008.
Our campaigns in such critical areas of work as forced marriage, honour killings, suicides and self harm, religious fundamentalism and immigration difficulties, especially the ‘no recourse to public funds’ issue, will have to be drastically cut back.
7:00pm onwards we need to pack out public gallery in the Liz Cantell Room (Ealing Town Hall) on the Ground Floor to support Southall Black Sisters.
Bus: 65, 83, 207, 297, 607, 112, E1, E2, 37, E8, E9, E10, N23, N2. British Rail & Underground – Ealing Broadway. Other transport: nearest major roads, A406, M4, M40, M25. Parking at rear after 5pm Mon-Fri. A Small charge applies between 8am and 6pm at weekends. Large multi-storey car parks within a five-minute walk at Springbridge Road and Ealing Broadway Centre.
