Helpline and Development
0808 801 0301
The Helpline is a listening ear and signposting service for Muslim women across Scotland. We run the Helpline Monday to Friday – 10 am – 4 pm for any Muslim-identified women, and on Wednesdays from 6 pm – 9 pm for young Muslims women (ages 16-25).
It is free from mobiles and landlines and will not appear on your phone bill. All calls are strictly confidential and non-judgmental; 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.
An inclusive world where Muslim and Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) women are fulfilling their aspirations.
Amina is an inclusive organisation that empowers and supports Muslim and BME women to create an inclusive Scotland in which they can contribute fully.
Founded on the principles of community development, our work is underpinned by community empowerment, participation and partnership working.
Vital to creating a fairer Scotland for all, is our engagement work with Muslim women to ensure their voices are able and empowered to contribute to national policies and that mainstream agencies, government bodies and policy makers have an informed understanding of barriers preventing Muslim women from accessing services and participating in society.
