Survivors’ Network aims to be inclusive of all people and their intersecting identities. We want to build a workforce that is reflective of our diverse society and provide services that are survivor centred and accessible for all.   

We want to work somewhere that gives us the freedom and flexibility to be ourselves, which recognises the great value in our differences, and supports us to succeed based on our individual strengths.  

As a community and a staff team, we know that this is not something that can be achieved overnight, but is rather an ongoing practice of reflection, learning and action. As part of this action, we particularly welcome applications from self-identifying women from communities that are currently underrepresented in our team and the sector more broadly, including those who are :    

  • over 45 years old   
  • disabled  
  • from Black, Asian and marginalised ethnic communities  
  • lesbian, bisexual and/or trans

Our vision: 

Uniting to confront sexual violence, abuse and harassment so that no one has to face the impacts alone 

Our mission:

  • Empowering our communities to stand up against sexual violence, abuse and harassment through education, training and campaigning

Pledges and Commitments

The Halo Code

Coral coloured oval with the Halo logo on it and the words "Halo hair code for workplaces"

Our workplace champions the right of staff to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black employees’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance.

We celebrate Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps.

In this workplace, we recognise and celebrate our colleagues’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on an employees ability to succeed.
