information SERVICE DETAILS

The Helpline is a listening ear and signposting service for Muslim women across Scotland.

We run the Helpline Monday to Friday, 10:00am - 4:00pm for any Muslim-identified women and BME women.

It is free from mobiles and landlines and will not appear on your phone bill. All calls are strictly confidential and non-judgemental; we always deal with clients in a faith and culturally-sensitive manner.

If you need to talk to someone or have a problem and don’t know where to go the Amina Helpline can help you get started by listening to you and signpost you to organisations that may be able to offer help and advice for your problem.

The top ten reasons women call us are:

- Family
- Marital/Relationship
- Domestic Abuse
- Mental Health
- Divorce
- Child Sexual Abuse
- Social Isolation
- Housing
- Agencies seeking support with signposting on behalf of their clients
- Immigration

The helpline is funded by the Scottish Government and we have recently increased the number of volunteers, adding to the range of language and telephone skills. We can help women in English, Arabic, Punjabi and Urdu. Any other languages can be accessed using a translating service as required.

Alima on the Helpline...

On Mondays from 10:00am - 2:00pm there will be an Alima (female Islamic available on the Helpline to give advice anonymously.
