Listen, Believe, Support

We are a women led, women only service, committed to providing a safe space in which survivors can heal.

We promise to do three things

Listen

Women who have experienced sexual abuse often feel misunderstood and unheard.

Our experienced staff are fully trained to listen to what you have to say with respect and without judgement.

Support

Women who have experienced sexual abuse often feel misunderstood and unheard.

our experienced staff will support you in making informed choices about your recovery.

Believe

You might be worried that people won't believe you and that you will be blamed for what happened.

We believe you.

We understand and appreciate the courage it can take to access support.

We want you to know you are not to blame and you are not alone. Sexual violence, including rape, sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse, is traumatic and everyone responds differently. Whatever you feel is a completely valid response.

This site contains information about us, the different services we offer and how to access them. You can also find information about sexual violence and the impact it can have. There are suggestions to help you to develop strategies to manage overwhelming feelings, and links to other organisations for further information and support. There are also sections for those professionals, family and friends who are supporting someone who has experienced sexual violence.
