Information on this page was last updated on 01/10/2017

Aawaz-Get-Involved-VolunteerAAWAZ is a local registered charity; we work with women and families, with those people who are in most need.  The name AAWAZ mean “Voice” in Urdu and is the “voice” of Asian women across Lancashire and nationally.

The charity’s work revolves around the principle of self-help, equipping women and families to learn to help themselves, so that the culture of dependency can be broken down. Through its work, a better understanding between communities has been achieved which is aiding integration and harmony.

The organisation’s head office is in Hyndburn Lancashire, in the heart of the deprived Central Ward, where 95% of residents are from South Asian heritage families. AAWAZ on average engages with over 300 women a week who all have different needs, but the main thrust of its work is still with women who wish to learn English, to enable them to help themselves and their families. The charity has sub-groups in Preston, Lancaster and Pendle and many volunteers across the country.
