We have produced a resource for survivors who are accessing support from us, which looks at trauma, the effects of sexual violence, ways of coping and recovery.





Who we are

It covers the key things that survivors struggle with and aims to offer practical ways of coping whilst waiting to access support. We have included exercises which our workers have found helpful in support, as well as quotes and words from survivors which aim to be a source of comfort and reassurance.


You can download the booklet here or contact us on if you would like us to post you out a copy.
