- Funded on Saturday, 1st September 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
SURVIVING UNITED provides peer support via group sessions and one to one support to both Male and Female Survivors of Sexual/Domestic/Psychological Abuse. They are based in Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth and is run by Survivors of Abuse.
I was sexually abused throughout my childhood and early adulthood by my father and some of his acquaintances, and although i had counselling and support eventually, nothing had helped me with the feelings of how alone i felt in my situation. As a survivor of abuse it is really important to feel validated and understood and unless someone has been through the same horrific events as you they dont understand in the same way.
Surviving United has changed my life. I no longer feel alone. I no longer feel as though i am the only one feeling the way i feel about my abuse.
As a small Charity Surviving United relies on fundraising to keep running. Several activities and events are offered to survivors to help with their Journey through survival. More recently, walking groups set up monthly to help survivors get out with the support of their group Amongst many other small activities.
Surviving United would like to expand their support now to the partners and families of survivors. A support group offered to them to support them through the difficulties of learning that their loved ones have been through abuse. An opportunity for them to also not feel alone in having to deal with the emotions involved in this.
We are stronger together. And together we are Surviving United
Please help make this Partners and Families of Survivors Group possible by donating what you can. Thank you for taking the time to read my story!
