Getting Help

We listen to, believe and support survivors of any race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, religious and cultural background.

We respect the courage and strength it takes to speak out about your experience of sexual violence, whether it has been a recent assault or it happened a long time ago.

If you are affected by sexual abuse in whatever form, at whatever stage of your life, recent or past, we are here to help.

We will work with you to help you overcome the negative impacts of trauma, violence, or abuse.

Our therapeutic counselling and art/play therapy sessions are provided at no cost to our clients. However, as a local charity, we need to raise funds from donations and grants in order to be able to provide our service for survivors of rape and sexual abuse who live in Cumbria and Lancashire.

Our current waiting list is 6-9 months.

If you'd like to refer yourself or someone else to our services, please do.
