We are delighted to be starting face-to-face groups from the end of July 2021.
The purpose of the Peer Support Group is for adult, self-identified women survivors of sexual violence, abuse or harassment, to come together, share their stories and gain support from each other. We offer a safe, welcoming and trauma sensitive space for this to happen (following the Peer Support Group Agreement, below).
The group is facilitated by a member of staff and our trained volunteers. They will hold the space and be on hand for anyone who needs support. Women who have experiences any form of sexual violence, abuse or harassment, no matter when it occurred, can attend. Please be aware this in not a therapeutic group.
The group will run weekly on a Wednesday between 6.30pm and 8.30pm in central Brighton, in an accessible location. We ask everyone arrives at 6.30pm. Anyone attending will need to have had an assessment with our Welcome Team.
If you are interested, please refer yourself to our Welcome Team here . You will be invited to have an assessment within about 2-weeks, where you can find out about other support, we have available.
If you have already had an assessment with our Welcome Team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be invited to have a short assessment about groupwork and be given more information about how our peer group works.
