Founder and CEO
Karma Nirvana was founded in Derby in 1993 by the survivor, campaigner and author Jasvinder Sanghera CBE.
We are a diverse group of like-minded individuals with a shared passion for helping people and realising change. Our team are well training and experienced to support victims and survivors of honour-based abuse, disownment and forced marriage.
We also benefit from a network of volunteers from around the country and generous supporters from around the world. So, whilst we’re based in West Yorkshire, we are a national charity.
