What We Do
The Survivors Trust is a National Membership Organisation with 120 Member Agencies based in the UK and Ireland.
We have 14 Member Agencies based in London, providing a wide range of specialist services for survivors including counselling, support, helplines, advocacy, workshops, and training for women, men, non-binary people, and children.
Our London Agencies are registered charities and are completely independent of the police.
The Survivors Trust provides infrastructure support, networking and representation for our Member Agencies.
This allows them to provide the best quality support to survivors of sexual violence as well as promoting victims’ rights and contributing to policy changes.
We ensure that the needs of our Member Agencies and their clients are considered in national and regional meetings and push for support for ALL survivors of all types of sexual violence, no matter when it happened to them or how old they are.
All of our Member Agencies work in line with our National Service Standards which provide assurance of consistent quality service delivery based on survivor empowerment and involvement ethos.
