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. 

This website has more information about Survivors' Network and our services. If you can’t find the information you need please contact us on 01273 203380 or email admin@survivorsnetwork.org.uk.

Our building is women-only on Monday evenings and all day on Thursdays
