Our trustees

Our incredible trustees are key to the work we do at SARSAS.

We couldn’t do what we do at SARSAS without the supportive and guiding hand of our amazing board of trustees. Through their time, commitment and expertise they help us thrive and make a huge difference to the lives of people affected by sexual violence. We are so lucky to have them.

“I love my role as the Chair of Trustees for SARSAS. We are incredibly fortunate to have a talented group of Trustees who are willing to share their knowledge experience and wisdom from across business, finance, the third sector and local government services. We all share the same goal of ensuring that the charity fulfils its promise of support, belief and trust for survivors of rape and sexual abuse – no matter when they experienced it. We see the impact of the amazing work of the SARSAS staff and volunteers at every meeting and we in turn are asked to make sure we hold ourselves and the charity to those high standards.”

Sleep and trauma

Sleep is crucial for everyone. However, for victim-survivors of sexual violence, it can play a vital role in allowing the brain and body to start healing, processing emotions, and restoring energy levels, which are often depleted after experiencing trauma.
