SARSAS exists to relieve the trauma and distress and help rebuild the lives of survivors who live in Somerset, Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and BANES, who have experienced any form of sexual violence, at any point in their lives. We campaign and educate to raise awareness and bring an end to sexual violence. Partnership work with a variety of agencies locally and nationally is a priority to enable social change.
Our work is guided by a trauma-informed approach that understands how traumatic experiences can impact on survivors and keeps an awareness of the effects of trauma at the forefront of our approach to support.
We work to feminist principles: this underpins both what our service is and how it is run. Our work is guided by a trauma-informed approach that understands how traumatic experiences can impact on victim-survivors and keeps an awareness of their effects at the forefront of our approach to support.
