Vision and values
For a world free from sexual violence, abuse and exploitation and a society in which everyone has equality, freedom and choices to live the lives they want and thrive.
To support women, including trans women, and young people of all genders (aged 11-18), who have experienced any form of sexual violence, abuse or exploitation in their lives.
To promote equality and raise public awareness of the routes of sexual violence and its damaging and life-changing effects.
Our values underpin all of the work we do with service users, staff, volunteers, trustees and partner agencies.
We believe first and foremost that perpetrators of rape, sexual abuse and exploitation are responsible for their actions – not survivors.
We are a feminist organisation which means we recognise that all forms of rape, sexual abuse and exploitation are acts of violence, involving the abuse of power and control by men over women, are a breach of human rights and are fundamentally routed in gender inequality.
