The Indigo Project is open to referrals, however in light of the current situation we have made some changes to how our service is currently operating.
Please consider the following when referring yourself or someone else:
- We are not currently offering longer term advocacy support and are offering short term coordination only, to link clients into emergency care or alternative longer-term support services
- We are considering referrals on a case by case basis according to the level of risk and urgency of support needed
If you are looking for counselling specifically, please see our Counselling and Therapeutic Support page
About The Indigo Project
The Indigo Project supports women aged 18 and over who have mental health needs and who have experienced, or are experiencing, gendered violence. We understand the impact of gender-based violence and trauma on women’s psychological wellbeing and we challenge stereotypes and assumptions about women’s mental health.
We offer a safe, confidential space that is women-only. We do not discriminate and understand the barriers that are faced by women around their culture, disability, economic wellbeing, immigration status, gender or sexual orientation. We are here to work with you to overcome these barriers.
Mental Health Advocacy
To access Indigo you must first have advocacy needs. If you are accepted into our service, you would be assigned a one to one Mental Health Advocate (MHA).
Our MHAs provide practical support, for example if you have issues with your housing or need support attending meetings or court hearings. We can also help in making complaints or raising your concerns if things have been mishandled.
When you are ready
Once you start working with your MHA you will have access to other therapeutic services:
- Specialist Counselling
- Body Therapy
- Group Work
Experts by Experience: Your life experience is valuable!
Women who access the Indigo Project are experts through their lived experience and know best what services are needed to support their recovery and well-being. The “EBE” project is an opportunity for you to have your say in how things are done! We have activities and excursions as well as training if you’re interested in becoming a member of our advisory group.
The Indigo Project is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.
We welcome self-referrals which can be made by calling 020 3725 5098 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also take professional referrals from external organisations.
