The Survivors Trust

TST is a national umbrella agency for over 135 specialist rape, sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse support organisations throughout the UK and Ireland.

Founded 2000

  • Mission statement

    We believe that the rape and sexual violation of children and adults is endemic within our society. Together we are committed to empowering survivors and their supporters to work through and beyond the experience of abuse.

    In our work we personally and professionally bear witness to the horror and trauma of sexual abuse and the ways in which we struggle yet survive creatively.

    We remember those of use who have not survived and acknowledge the times each one of us may struggle to do so.


    The Survivors Trust Core Belief …
    We believe that the sexual abuse and/or rape or girls, boys, women and men is preventable and we challenge society to acknowledge both its reality and our individual and collective responsibility for it.


    The Survivors Trust Core Aims …
    To support and empower survivors of rape, sexual violence and/or childhood sexual abuse through:

    Providing a collective voice and peer networking for members;
    Raising awareness about sexual abuse and/or rape and its effects on survivors, their supporters and society at large;
    Informing acknowledgement of, and effective responses to, rape and sexual abuse on a local, regional and national level.




    The Survivors Trust is a national umbrella agency for over 120 specialist voluntary sector agencies providing a range of counselling, therapeutic and support services working with women, men and children who are victims/survivors of rape, sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse.

    Our member groups are located throughout the UK and Ireland. We welcome diversity, and yet each of our member groups is determined to be part of an extensive group that works to empower other groups and services through shared ideas and resources.
