HELPLINE VOLUNTEERS DESPERATELY NEEDED!

September 27th, 2016 by

We are recruiting again for more helpline volunteers to allow us to extend our opening hours and be able to offer support when callers need us. We’re looking for volunteers to give just a few hours a week to volunteer on our confidential helpline.
You’ll be offering telephone support, signposting and referring callers to our other services. Full training and ongoing support will be given. We need people who are caring, good communicators and who are organised as there will be some admin duties linked to the role.
If you’re interested in the role then we’d love to hear from you. Please email [email protected] and we will send you a role description and an application form.

Our CEO, Fay Maxted, Awarded an OBE

December 22nd, 2015 by

We’re proud to announce that on Tuesday 6th October our CEO, Fay Maxted, was presented with an OBE (Officer of the most excellent Order of the British Empire) in recognition of her “services to survivors and victims of rape and sexual violence”

Fay Maxted is presented with an OBE

Fay has been CEO of The Survivors Trust since 2004. Fay serves on the National Police Chief Council for Rape (Response) Working Group; she is also on the Panel for the Children’s Commissioner’s Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse in the family environment and last July, she was also appointed to the V&SCP (Victims & Survivors Consultative Panel) of the independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse headed by Justice Lowell Goddard DNZM, QC.

Fay Maxted OBE said: “As a survivor myself, it is quite something to go from feeling so ashamed at what I had experienced, to being at Buckingham Palace in this highest symbol of honour. I hope this can speak to every single survivor of rape & sexual violence / abuse and communicate that, while your life will never be the same, it need not be over.”

Congratulations Fay!
