What is group work?

Group support can be really empowering and healing for people who have experienced sexual violence.

We run several groups at SARSAS, and all are run by experienced women who understand the many challenges that being a survivor can bring.

Our groups are spaces to learn, connect with others and find personal empowerment. They are not counselling groups, but they are safe spaces where we will always believe you. All SARSAS services, including our groups, are trans-inclusive and wheelchair accessible. We are are committed to providing safe and welcoming spaces for everyone. If you’d like to take part and have accessibility requirements, please let us know.

Lots of people can feel nervous or unsure before going to a support group. We’ve made a video about our groups to show what you can expect and the benefits of taking part.

What groups do you offer?

Our group programme is expanding, but currently includes:

  • The Power Programme (an empowerment learning support group)
  • Surviving to Thriving (an art and creative expression group)
  • Yoga (trauma-informed movement for body and mind)
  • Kitchen Connection Healing (a cookery group)
