The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the entire world. With lockdowns, restrictions and feelings of isolatation now more than ever it's crucial to let survivors know 'You are not Alone'.

Due to the increased prevalence of sexual violence and child abuse as a whole in society there is a greater need for trauma support services to be more visible and accessible to all who need support.

Savana's vital outreach, awareness and prevention work is never more needed.

Can you take on the #twentyfourchallenge and help to empower survivors to feel they can speak out against abuse is to challenge the stigmas surrounding the silence?

Get creative!

All you need to do is create a fundraising activity based around the number 20 or 4 (or both!). It can be as simple as bouncing a ball 20 times to a 2.4 hour sponsered silence to cutting something out for 24 days.

About Savana:

As the leading experts around sexual violence and abuse in North Staffordshire. Savana provide help and support for anyone, from the age of 4 and upwards who have experienced any form of sexual violence whether recently or in the past. This includes rape, sexual assault, domestic violence, 'honour' related violence and childhood sexual abuse.

Alongside providing help and support, Savana are dedicated to delivering education around sexual violence including the psychological, physical and practical impacts faced by survivors.

The origin of Savana can be found in a local pilot project set up to raise the aspirations of women in Chell Heath. The emphasis was to encourage women back into education and employment.

However, the workers quickly found themselves overwhelmed listening to women's stories of sexual abuse and violence, the need was recognised and a Rape Crisis service was set up.

The organisation now known as Savana has been on a roller-coaster journey, expanding and implementing a more efficient, responsive and personalised service, enabling us to continue providing face to face counselling, Independent Sexual Violence Advice (ISVA), training and youth programs alongside promoting self-help, self-care and prevention.
