Survivors Together Activities

As a social group for female survivors of sexual abuse, our main purpose is to provide a relaxed environment where woman survivors can socialise and try new activities with people who understand.

Survivors Together is based in East London and our meeting activities include writing, poetry, crafts, Thai chi, guest speakers, mindfulness and other coping techniques.

Our meetings have been cancelled while COVID-19 is keeping us at home, but we are finding other ways to keep in touch, like our members Facebook group, zoom Thai Chi and virtual afternoon tea parties.

Our usual summer trips (The Friary day of activities, trip to Leigh-on-Sea and our Essex mini-break) have also been cancelled but we are looking at replacing them with a day of zoom activities instead.

We usually meet for a Christmas meal but we’ll have to wait and see if we’re allowed this year.

Some of the other ways we support our members include food parcels, medicine delivery and phone support.

Yvonne (our Director) meets people individually before welcoming them to the group (currently via zoom). She has an enormous understanding of the issues involved and what resources are available.

If you are interested in joining us, we are currently doing what we can remotely, so please contact Yvonne on 07961 351361. Alternatively, see our contact page for more details.

A lot has happened since our launch more than ten years ago.

What started as a coffee shop meet up with just a handful of people is now a regular collaboration with over 70 members.

We received charitable status in 2009 and have had two Big Lottery grants.

Our other supporters have included The Hospital Saturday Fund and London Catalyst.

We’d love to work with a corporate sponsor so if you know a business that might be interested in supporting us, please get in touch with Yvonne on 07961 351361.

We are full members of The Survivors Trust.

The Survivors Trust

We may be small, but the impact we have on our survivors is immeasurable.

What gives us hope is seeing women – often fractured by their experiences – start the journey to becoming whole again.
