Helping you grow, through knowledge

Meena Kumari

A few words from our founder

Thank you for visiting our website! My name is Meena Kumari and I am the founder and director of H.O.P.E Training & Consultancy. We offer Training, Consultancy, Activism & Advocacy. I developed H.O.P.E in 2008 after I felt I wanted to share my skills and knowledge around Domestic Abuse, Sexual Violence and Safeguarding with professionals that were working with these issues. I started my journey delivering training around Forced Marriages, Honour Abuse & Female Genital Mutilation training but then expanded out to other subject matters that i have dealt with as a front line professional. I have always been passionate and committed to raising awareness around these issues and hope to continue this way into the future! Hopefully we can work together soon. I work with a number of brilliant associates who are all experienced within safeguarding, domestic abuse & sexual violence. In the meantime please have a look around my website and get in touch if you require any of the services. Other job roles i have held during my working career to date can be found here.
