About us

Founded in 2008, P.H.O.E.B.E. is a registered charity that helps women and children from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic, and migrant communities who suffer because of poverty, mental health, isolation, low self-esteem, financial difficulties, and domestic abuse. Our services include domestic violence support, counselling, self-esteem workshops, ESOL classes, welfare and practical support, amongst others.
