Each of our website sections explores a specific area associated with the effects that survivors of rape and/or sexual abuse can often experience in the aftermath of sexual trauma, and provides a resource for survivors and anyone who wants to learn more about the impact of sexual violence, or wants to use as a self-help toolkit as part of their recovery journey.

 

 

These sections introduce the subjects they cover, share experiences and advice from survivors with lived experience, outline some common challenges and concerns that survivors may have in these areas, and provide tips, exercises, and links to external resources which survivors may find useful to explore further. The topics included on this site are:

We have also put together a Resources Database that you can use to search for specific resources to meet your needs.

 

While supporters of survivors, such as family members, partners, and professionals who work with them, may find other areas of the site useful, we have also put together a specific section exploring resources for supporters.

 

This site has been developed in collaboration with survivors with lived experience and representatives from The Survivors Trust member organisations, who provide specialist support to all survivors of rape, sexual violence, and sexual abuse.

 

Look after yourself

Everyone’s journey of healing from sexual violence and abuse is different, and you may find that some sections of the website or resources suggested are not right for you. This is completely normal and you should try to explore and work through resources at your own pace and tolerance level. Any moment or action you can take for yourself, no matter how small it might seem, is a step forwards.

If you would like to find specialist support in your area, visit the Find Support section of The Survivors Trust website.

You can also contact The Survivors Trust helpline for free, confidential emotional support.
