We are a registered charity, established in 1992 and based in Guildford. We work with anyone in Surrey whose life has been affected by rape or sexual abuse, whether recently or in the past.
Our mission is to relieve the distress of people who have suffered rape and/or sexual abuse or assault, and to educate the public.
How we help
Our aim is to help survivors to overcome the abuse they have experienced and to rebuild their lives.
We support women, men and young people aged 13 and over, as well as family and friends of survivors, in Surrey and the surrounding area.
We provide a range of free, specialist support services:
- Free helpline
- Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA) service
- Youth Counselling
- Family Support
- Group support
We also run a community awareness programme to promote the services we offer to survivors and to raise awareness of the impact of sexual abuse.
Who we are
We are a small team of paid staff and volunteers. We are supported by funding from statutory and community organisations, charitable trusts, and individual donations.
We are a member of The Survivors Trust and our services meet The Survivors Trust Standards. We are also a member of the Helpline Partnership and the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
Our head office is located in central Guildford and we operate counselling services in Guildford
and Leatherhead town centres. We provide support to survivors in the county of Surrey.
