Some Shocking Statistics:
– 1 in 3 women will be a victim of domestic abuse in their lifetime
– On average, 2 women a week are killed by a current or former male partner
– Up to 10,000 forced marriages take place in the UK every year
– An estimated 2.5 million people are in forced labour (including sexual exploitation) at any given time as a result of trafficking
Breaking The Silence not only raises awareness around domestic abuse, forced marriage and human trafficking, it actively dispels it, which is only possible when its leader has first hand experience in overcoming such life-threatening ordeals.
If you are currently suffering or have suffered from:
Emotional & psychological abuse
Threats, intimidations, degradations or isolations
Online or digital abuse
Then let us help you break your silence.

Breaking the Silence Single
By Makeda Ubiaro aka Makeeda
The late singer & songwriter Makeeda had joined forces with Breaking the Silence to release a single to help raise funds for us to continue our work and to raise hope to all those who need it.
Makeeda said: “I really hope this song can inspire people who have been through or currently in a challenging season in their lives. It’s a song of hope, of freedom, of fighting to have the right to live a happy and successful life; whatever that may mean to you.“
