Vision and values

Reclaim the Night walkVision statement

Working towards a world free from all forms of sexual abuse and exploitation.

Mission statement

To support women, children and young people affected by all forms of sexual abuse and exploitation and to raise public awareness of the damaging and life-changing effects of rape, sexual abuse and exploitation.

Our values

Our values underpin all of the work we do with service users, staff, volunteers, trustees and partner agencies.

Understanding sexual and domestic violence and its impact

We believe first and foremost that perpetrators of sexual abuse are responsible for their actions – not survivors!

We recognise that all forms of sexual abuse are acts of violence, involving the abuse of power and control, a breach of human rights and are routed in gender inequality.

Safety, security and dignity

The safety, security and dignity of survivors, staff and volunteers is a priority within WRASAC.

Diversity

We respect the diversity of survivors, staff and volunteers and positively engage in anti-discriminatory practice in order to uphold this.

Advocacy and support

  • We are here to listen
  • We are here to explore and empower survivors discover what they are feeling
  • We are here to help survivors identify their options
  • We are here to help survivors discover their own strength
  • We are here to provide information and support on how to access other support services, including health and the police

Confidentiality

We understand the importance of the survivor’s right to confidentiality and will ensure all survivors are fully informed of the boundaries of confidentiality within our services.

Participation

We believe that by drawing on the experiences and expertise of survivors we can make a difference. We provide opportunities and positively encourage survivors to inform the delivery and development of our service and to inform national and local policies.

Partnership working

We are committed to working collaboratively and in partnership with key agencies in order to achieve real and profound change.

Challenging myths and social tolerance of sexual abuse

WRASAC works from the core belief that all forms of sexual abuse, violence and exploitation is preventable. As such we promote the raising of awareness about to the impact of sexual violence, and work to challenge misconceptions and social tolerance of sexual abuse within our community.

Quality

Ending sexual abuse and exploitation

We believe that everyone should and must be able to live lives free from the threat and effects of sexual abuse. We believe WRASAC can help to make that happen.
