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 legal; project management; commissioning; ​
psychiatry, psychology or psychotherapy; Human Resources. ​

Please see our Trustee Recruitment Pack for more details and how to apply, 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.
