roshni aims to develop skills and self-confidence within minority ethnic communities in addressing issues around safeguarding and wellbeing.
Through our educational and awareness activities, we engage with minority ethnic children, young people and adults through a series of interactive, culturally and faith sensitive workshops.
Our interactive and participative workshops explore perceptions and attitudes in a secure and non-judgmental setting, whilst examining the peripheral issues surrounding abuse.
We have done such activities in the following workshops:
- The SAFE project, supported by the Scottish Government, will actively promote the safeguarding and wellbeing of minority ethnic children and young people through the delivery of a community outreach programme and awareness raising campaign.
This project aims to develop skills and self-confidence within these communities.
This programme will engage with minority ethnic children and young people through a series of interactive, culture and faith sensitive workshops, as well as parents, carers and organisation through our community engagement events.
In addition, the SAFE project offers training for organisations and professionals to increase cultural awareness and to ensure effective protection of children and young people from a minority ethnic background.
- The Ethnic Survivors Forum (ESF) is a culturally sensitive service available for minority ethnic communities and professional bodies. Supported by the Scottish Government, ESF is a national service providing confidential, and multi-lingual support services to minority ethnic adult survivors of childhood abuse.
Through our community education and outreach programme, ESF aims to engage with the full spectrum of minority ethnic communities to increase awareness and empower individuals and communities to openly discuss report and challenge childhood sexual abuse.
ESF offers a range of training and consultancy services for mainstream organisations and professional bodies to support the provision of culture and faith sensitive services for minority ethnic survivors of childhood abuse.

- The Tackling Forced Marriage Initiative (TFM) supported by the Forced Marriage Unit, aims to raise the awareness and challenge the practice of forced marriage.
TFM, a national initiative, will work towards eliminating forced marriage by challenging the practice before it takes places, through working with communities, faith groups and victims to overcome the culture of acceptance and denial.
We will engage with minority ethnic communities across Scotland through our community education and outreach programme as well as a series of specialised awareness raising events.
The TFM initiative aims to ensure that all victims of forced marriage receive effective, appropriate, culture and faith sensitive support from all relevant Scottish agencies. We will support improvement in services through the delivery of culturally sensitive training seminars and an ELearning module to frontline staff and professionals.
