SARSAS exists to relieve the trauma and distress and help rebuild the lives of victim-survivors who live in Somerset, Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and BANES, who have experienced any form of sexual violence, at any point in their lives. We campaign and educate to raise awareness and bring an end to sexual violence. Partnership work with a variety of agencies locally and nationally is a priority to enable social change.

We work to feminist principles: this underpins both what our service is and how it is run. Our work is guided by a trauma-informed approach that understands how traumatic experiences can impact victim-survivors and keeps an awareness of their effects at the forefront of our approach to support.
