Hull Sisters

Hull Sisters is a minority-led, feminist organisation dedicated to helping women. We provide specialist support, services and a safe space for black and minority women and children in Hull and East Riding.

We are led by the people we support, which means all our management, staff and trustees are black and minority women. This gives us a unique understanding of the specific needs of the communities we serve, and how best to protect, advise and represent them.

Hull Sisters believes every woman has the right to live a happy and fearless life. That’s why we offer a safe, empowering, all-female space where our clients can build relationships and access the support they need.

We support women facing violence, abuse, discrimination, oppression, poverty and issues with immigration, health and welfare rights. The service we provide is specialist, culturally appropriate and fully equipped to help those with complex needs.

Hull Sisters currently serves almost 500 women and families, with more self-referrals every day. We are the lifeline for women who don’t feel comfortable using mainstream services – the vital source of confidential support to help black and minority women feel safe, confident and part of their community.
