Support

Survivors Voices recognises the shared perspective of anyone who has experienced abuse, trauma or violence as a child or an adult and the power of sharing stories with those who understand. We call this enlightened self-help and peer support.  Our passion is to see this available for all survivors who want it.

We offer peer support and enlightened self-help through our private Facebook group and informal gatherings. See our project page for details.

Please note that we do not provide therapy or counselling. For help in finding support in the UK, please contact your GP, mental health services or social services. If you are struggling with feeling suicidal, please contact the Samaritans or your local hospital A&E. Some agencies survivors have found helpful are:

NAPAC support line for adults abused as children (any form of abuse)
