sarac (Sexual Abuse Rape Advice Centre) is a charity based in Burton upon Trent offering free, independent and one-to-one emotional support, information and advice.
Our specialist support is for males and females who are 11 years of age or older, and who have been affected at any time in their lives.
We work in partnership with our clients to expand their choices, facilitate recovery and encourage personal growth.
sarac’s objectives include the delivery of specialist, face-to-face emotional support, ensuring all supporters are trained to a high standard, and are managed and supported to a high standard.
sarac’s service users present with a range of issues that stem from sexual abuse; many are self-referrals.
sarac has secured strong support from local organisations and authorities, all of whom recognise the value of its work. The staff team has grown and, in turn, so has the volunteer programme, which offers accredited training and ensures that high-quality emotional support is available to those suffering from the effects of sexual abuse.
sarac’s mission is to sustain and enhance bespoke, specialist, emotional-support services for all people aged 11 and over who are, or have been, victims of rape and/or sexual abuse. It will do this by uniting, leading, educating and training local people who are passionate about protecting and inspiring this positive change in the local community to embed approaches that protect themselves and others.
