Support groups for adult survivors of abuse

Local and national survivors of abuse support groups

Whilst we aim to provide you with the highest level of legal representation we also recognise the need for appropriate professional and informal support.

As part of our holistic approach we will encourage you to seek help from both local and national support groups, who have a specialist expertise in supporting survivors of sexual abuse and neglect.

As we have contact with many of these organisations, we can make initial contact with them on your behalf if you wish.

See a list of available support groups below.
