Survivors West Yorkshire (SWY) is a survivor led and focused service. Its vision is to support evidenced based services that are gender informed and accessible across West Yorkshire. Services which are user friendly and proactively involve survivors.
Our aim is to created a specialist service that connects survivors and their supporters to professional services using good practice standards. Our focus is on cloud based support offering off-line options if appropriate for the survivor.
Our objective is to innovatively support the self-empowerment of adult survivors of sexual violence- abuse by developing robustly evaluated psychological interventions.
Supported by self – help knowledge and social action involvement platforms which allow survivors to become a supported collective expert resource to support policy and service improvements. Underpinned by partnership working to create collective impacts.
Please note we do not work with sexual offenders but recognise that survivors are sometimes sexual offenders and signposts appropriately to specialist services who can support them effectively. The following service may be helpful to you if have offended or feel you are at risk of doing so www.stopitnow.org.uk
