Service Providing Centre
Advocacy & Assistance at our Service Providing Centre

The Department of Women and Child Development, in conjunction with various NGOs, has established service provider centers in all districts of Kerala aimed at safeguarding and supporting women in accordance with the provisions of the Domestic Violence Act of 2005. In 2013, the Malabar Social Service Society initiated its own Service Providing Center as part of this initiative. MASSS designated a legal advocate to operate within the center, offering legal support and coordinating awareness programs to promote public awareness and foster gender sensitivity.

The Service Providing Center offers essential services, such as specialized individual counseling for those in need and legal support for victims. In addition to these services, the center has conducted general awareness programs within the local community to increase awareness about the protection offered by the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act of 2005. Through its initiatives, the Service Center plays an indispensable role in enhancing public awareness and nurturing the foundation of gender sensitivity and gender equality among the general public in the Kannur region.
