Anah Project

JUST West Yorkshire is challenging Bradford Council’s decision to decommission Anah, which provides specialist support to vulnerable Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) victims of domestic violence. As of 31st March 2012 Anah’s entire funding from Bradford Council will cease with adverse repercussions for vulnerable BME service users. JUST has written to Bradford Council challenging the Equality Impact Assessment, which was the basis for the decision to close the Anah project. JUST has had no option but to issue an open statement as Bradford Council has failed to respond to our concerns to date.
