About the SARSAS Learning Disabilities and Autism Project

The SARSAS Learning Disabilities and Autism Project aims to provide support to individuals and organisations to make sure people with learning disabilities and autism who have experienced rape and sexual abuse are able to access support to help them cope and recover.

The project includes support for individuals, training for professionals, and developing accessible support resources.

The project is guided by two advisory groups: one made up of women with learning disabilities and autism. The other made up of national professionals with a keen interest and expertise who support the project.

The project is funded by the Three Guinea’s Trust.
