Every 5 minutes someone is raped in the UK. One in four women and one in six men have experienced sexual violence. 15% of girls and 5% of boys have experienced sexual violence by the time they are sixteen.
The Survivors Trust is the largest umbrella agency for specialist rape and sexual abuse services in the UK and has been providing infrastructure support to our members for the past 15 years. We have 124 member agencies based in the UK and Ireland providing information, advice, support and therapy to over 80,000 individual survivors each year. Our services work with victims and survivors of all ages, all genders, of all forms of sexual violence, sexual abuse and sexual exploitation, including support for partners and family members.
We believe that rape and sexual abuse is wrong and challenge society to end it.
Our aim is to support and empower survivors of rape, sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse by providing a collective voice for specialist services, education about sexual violence and informing acknowledgement of, and effective responses to, sexual violence and abuse on a local, regional and national level.
At present, donations are being used to help support our helpline and livechat.
