Welcome to Survive

If you have experienced childhood sexual abuse, rape or sexual assault and are living with the consequences it takes courage to reach out for help.

Anybody can be a target of sexual violence and abuse; men, women, older people, children, people with disabilities, people with different gender identities, people of any background or culture. Whatever your specific needs we are open to your experience.
