Become a trustee

As a growing charity, we are currently recruiting new trustees.

We are especially keen to hear from those with skills and experience in finance or HR, those with a clinical or counselling background or those who identify as survivors themselves or have experience of supporting survivors. Survive wants to build a diverse team which reflects the communities we serve and encourages and welcomes people from all backgrounds.

​The Board of Trustees currently meet every 1-2 months in York. There will also be opportunities to get involved in specific projects in between these meetings via zoom.

To arrange an initial, informal chat, please email Peter Meek,

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.
