Objectives

Sheffield Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (SRASAC) works to support recovery from the emotional and psychological distress caused by trauma from rape, sexual violence or sexual abuse/exploitation whenever it happened in a persons’ life.

We work with all genders and ages whenever they experienced.  We aim to create a safe and welcoming atmosphere for everyone.  We believe that every individual who is part of the SRASAC community – that is all employees, trustees, volunteers and clients - should be treated with dignity and respect and be part of a service that is free from barriers. 

We want to challenge all forms of oppression including those based on race, ethnicity, nationality, creed, gender, sex, class, sexuality, gender reassignment, learning ability, physical impairment, mental illness, HIV status, age, occupation, income and wealth.

We aim to design our activities, services and decision making processes specifically to encourage and support participation from people who face disadvantage in society, including people from Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic and Refugee communities, disabled people, LGBTQ people, and people on low incomes.

Activities

What we offer:

  • Specialist counselling for survivors aged 13 or above.
  • Specialist support groups including for (non abusing) parents or carers of child survivors.
  • Support from reporting incidents to the police through the criminal justice system via our Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA) service for children, young people and adults.
