Although their reach is primarily Muslim women, the helpline – 0800 999 5786 – will accept calls from and support women of any faith or no faith. For example, the culturally sensitive nature of the helpline could easily support Asian women of other faiths. Men who are concerned about women and girls should also call the helpline. If men and boys need support for example at risk of forced marriage, then they should also call the helpline.
Those calling the helpline are likely to fall into three categories depending on the type of help required:
* Callers who are in a crisis situation and need immediate help
* Callers wanting information about legal rights and / or help or support available
* Callers who want advice about a problem and want someone to talk to so they feel more confident and empowered to make decisions
