Supporting Survivors of Abuse
Supporting Survivors of Abuse was established in 2006.
We are a small group of people who have suffered abuse including partner rape, mental abuse, both physical and sexual abuse within the care system. We bring with us an understanding of how many victims feel, and knowledge of what they maybe seeking.We work with victims in one to one sessions to help the victim/survivor understand that the abuse they have suffered is in no way their fault and they are more than the abuse.
We have a mixture of volunteers working for Supporting Survivors of Abuse UK, who all contribute towards supporting people emotionally, psychologically and practically. The team are highly motivated towards raising society's awareness of the prevalence and consequences of any abuse or violence as well as helping to challenge common myths and unhelpful perceptions.
On this web site you will find information about Supporting Survivors of Abuse UK and our services, some facts and advice about what to do if you have been suffering from any abuse and your options if the incident happened some time ago. You will also find some links to useful web sites and information on other services in the UK that may help you.
Women are not the only victims of violence and sexual abuse, men can be victims too. Men who suffer from abuse, whether sexual, verbal or emotional, may be even more ashamed to seek help.
Learn how to protect yourself from violence and leave an abusive relationship safely. Includes tips on getting a restraining order, finding a shelter, and staying safe after you have left.
