Survive - Support for Survivors of Rape and Sexual Abuse

1990-2020: 30 years of helping survivors of sexual trauma

We started as a survivor-led support group for women who had experienced child sexual abuse (CSA). We now help men and women recover from sexual trauma: from rape, sexual assault and CSA to grooming, exploitation and coercive sexual control.

Survive has achieved so much since the first seeds were sown three decades ago. For those with experience of sexual abuse, the legacy leaves a long and difficult road to travel. Sadly, the need for the vital support and services Survive provides to aid people on that journey is as great as it ever was - perhaps even more so in these challenging times Ruth, Founder of Survive in 1990

Please donate to Survive in this our 30th year to help us help more survivors of sexual trauma rebuild their lives, their relationships and reach their potential.

For 30 years, Survive has listened to survivors share their experiences of child sexual abuse. For three decades, Survive has been helping survivors of rape and sexual abuse - including that which occurs between those who are or have been intimate partners.

Our specialist support workers and counsellors make a real and tangible difference to the lives of survivors.

I feel more in control, more optimistic and more able to live my life ...

I feel more positive than I have for years

I am starting to feel whole and, slowly, pieces of the jigsaw are coming together

...Thank you for letting me be heard when others would not. Thank you for your patience. I wish there wasn't a need for your service, but whilst there is, Im glad you are there

Help us continue to be there for survivors of sexual trauma.
