Charity of the year

Nominating Survive as your Charity of the Year is a unique opportunity to demonstrate your company’s commitment to making a stand against sexual violence and abuse whilst uniting your staff behind an inspiring cause that makes a difference to survivors and transforms lives.

Why partner with Survive?

Survive is the only TST accredited sexual violence agency delivering a range of specialist, trauma-informed services in York, North Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire, helping adult survivors of rape, sexual assault and child sexual abuse rebuild their lives, relationships and reach their potential.

Because more people are talking about sexual violence and abuse, more survivors are asking for our help meaning our waiting lists have increased and people are waiting longer to access our services.

In the last six years, we’ve seen a 350% increase in new referrals.

Since last year, we’ve seen a 40% increase in new referrals.

Our team is made up of dedicated and specialised professionals who understand and recognise the ways trauma can affect someone and respond in a compassionate and caring way, providing the best possible support to survivors of sexual violence and abuse free-of-charge.

We know what we do works – because survivors have said so:

“When I look in the mirror I can now really see myself again – it has taken more than 15 years to do this.”

“Survive has given me the skills to work through my memories and I am looking forward to getting back to work.”

“Survive enabled me to love and care for myself.”

Survive needs your help

With your fundraising, we can

  • help more survivors rebuild their lives following sexual trauma.
  • help survivors rebuild their lives more quickly by making sure we have the right number of support workers, counsellors, and trauma therapists to meet demand.

With your help and support, Survive can:

  • reach out to more survivors who may need our services through your networks.
  • learn and share knowledge and skills between our teams.

We can provide materials for any fundraising events, and we would be delighted to talk to your team about the work of Survive and how your efforts will positively impact the lives of survivors in our area.  Get in touch by emailing
