Voluntary Sector Charity No. 1029186

Summary of aims & objectives:

To relieve the mental and physical distress of women, men, children or young people who have suffered rape, sexual abuse or trauma, or have been affected by sexual crime. We aim to promote education and research into the subject of Sexual Abuse and the effect it has on women, men, children and young people, whether medical, social and/or psychological.

We also aim to raise awareness of the issues surrounding sexual crime, alerting people to the dangers and educating people, so that myths and stereotypes surrounding the nature of Rape and Sexual Abuse can be dismissed. We are committed to providing empathy, care and respect to those whose pain may have been hidden for years, enabling them to find the strength and courage to regain control of their life and achieve their full potential.
