Welcome, we're glad you found us


Survivors' Network is a registered charity that aims to reduce sexual violence and its impact on survivors' lives. We are a fully accredited member of Rape Crisis England and Wales and are the Rape Crisis Centre for Sussex.

We understand that a healing journey starts with a small step and are here to help you.

We know that it takes a lot of courage to seek help for the effects of sexual abuse. There is no right or wrong way to feel afterwards and there is no fixed time for recovery.

No-one ever asks to be raped or is responsible for the attack in any way.

We believe that with the right support you can heal from your experiences.

Women who work and volunteer in the Rape Crisis movement are among signatories to an activists' letter of unity released on Sunday 18th February, in solidarity with 200 women from the entertainment industry as they launched their Time's Up UK campaign to coincide with the BAFTAs.
