How we help

Survive offers a range of specialist services to help survivors of sexual violence.

Our specialist counsellors, support workers and helpline volunteers understand the devastating impact sexual violence can have – especially if the rape or sexual assault was perpetrated by someone close to you. Sexual trauma is the term we use to describe the long-term effects of sexual violence.

Our team will offer you a safe space where you can be heard and listened to. They will help you explore your options and take the first step towards rebuilding your life and relationships and reaching your potential.

It doesn’t matter about background or personal circumstances. Survive is committed to helping any adult who has experienced sexual violence who approaches us for help to rebuild their life. This may include trying to facilitate support to other agencies, if we feel they are more appropriate.


Counselling offers a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment in which to explore what has happened to you with the help of a qualified counsellor.
