Become a trustee

If you are passionate about survivors of sexual trauma having access to our specialist, trauma-informed services to help them rebuild their lives, relationships and reach their potential, we want to hear from you!​

Our trustees play a pivotal role in shaping the future direction of our charity. They make a difference by giving their time and sharing their skills, life experience and expertise with the charity.​

This will be an interesting role, providing you with the opportunity to use your current skills and to learn some new ones along the way.  You will be working with a team of energetic, committed and caring people who all want to do their best for the people who use our services.​

Survive wants to build a diverse team which reflects the communities we serve and encourages and welcomes all applications, including those who have themselves been subjected to sexual violence and abuse. ​

We are especially keen to hear from individuals with skills in fundraising and service commissioning.

Please see our Trustee Recruitment Pack for more details and how to apply, or you can apply through Reach Volunteering we look forward to hearing from you!



I was seven when I went to visit a friend of my parents. He sexually abused me before offering me some of his wife’s jewellery.

He then frightened me by saying I would be in real trouble if anyone found out.

I was in my 40s when I reached crisis point and was unable to function.

The abuse happened when I was a child and Survive was my last hope.
