Supporting Survivors of Abuse
Supporting Survivors of Abuse was set up to help those who have experienced any form of abuse, either as a child or as an adult. We don't believe in labelling these people as victims. They have survived their experiences and we strive to help them deal with the after effects.
We offer a non-judgemental service, regardless of race, age, gender or sexual orientation. The people we help come from a wide variety of backgrounds. The only thing they have in common is that they have suffered from abuse, whether from a close partner, family or from strangers.
Women are not the only victims of violence and sexual abuse, men can be victims too. Men who suffer from abuse, sexual, verbal and emotional abuse may be even more ashamed to seek help.
We help victims to learn how to protect themselves from violence and leave an abusive relationship safely. We include tips on getting a restraining order, finding a shelter and staying safe after they have left.
Partners of sexual abuse survivors, are often, overlooked when it comes to support. There are few enough real life support groups for survivors themselves, so it is not surprising that with the lack of funding there is a seldom any at all for partners of survivors. Being a partner of a sexual abuse survivor is not the easiest of relationships to have in the world and will have many frustrations, although it can be a very rewarding one at times.
Whether you or someone you know has been physically, sexually or mentally abused, we are here to help. We offer a range of services from counselling and mentoring to practical help dealing with daily life.
If you or anyone you know needs help, please contact us.
