For the past five years, our team of Specialist Support Workers have supported and empowered victims/survivors in truly life changing ways.

Sexual violence can have lifelong impacts on people’s lives; mental health issues, drug and alcohol issues, homelessness, isolation. For some people these will make it hard for them to access traditional support, and they can fall through the gaps.

They need something designed for them to help them reclaim their lives. That’s where we come in! Our team of highly trained Specialist Support Workers provide flexible and creative support to help people cope and recover from trauma.

“Our Specialised Support Worker team provide essential help to women who have experienced the devastating impacts of rape and sexual abuse. Women who want to be able to get their lives back on track, to leave the house again, start a job, feel safe having a relationship. We know that our practical and emotional support can really make a huge difference to survivor’s lives.”  Claire Bloor CEO

Our Specialist Support Workers are an amazing team and we don’t want to lose them.  They are helping 24 women a week who rely on this support. But we have a gap in our funding which means this service might not be able to continue.

Our dedicated fundraisers are out there finding new long-term financial support, but we need people’s help to keep this crucial service going in the meantime.

You can join us! We want to raise £5000 that will cover 234 hours of support.

This money will be enough to pay our workers’ wages, the costs of support rooms, and materials like art supplies. It will allow our incredible team of Specialist Support Workers to keep changing lives for the better.

So please help us to raise this money by donating and sharing to save this vital service.

Here’s what some of the people we’ve supported say:

“You have held my hand (metaphorically) through one of the most devastating but transformational periods of my life. The support and loving guidance you have given me is unforgettable and I’m sure will have long-lasting ripples throughout my life and beyond.”

“I feel so very hopeful about my future, thanks to you.”
