Welcome, we're glad you found us


Survivors' Network is a registered charity that aims to reduce sexual violence and its impact on survivors' lives. We are a fully accredited member of Rape Crisis England and Wales and are the Rape Crisis Centre for Sussex.

We understand that a healing journey starts with a small step and are here to help you.

We know that it takes a lot of courage to seek help for the effects of sexual abuse. There is no right or wrong way to feel afterwards and there is no fixed time for recovery.

No-one ever asks to be raped or is responsible for the attack in any way.

We believe that with the right support you can heal from your experiences.

Have your say

Survivors Network is running a short project to explore how people who use its services can have their say about their experiences of them. 


We are planning to run some short telephone interviews and face to face focus groups and you are invited to take part in anyway you wish if you have something you want to share.  


Please email survivorsnetworkvoice[at], call the office on 01273 203380 or mention your interest to a member of the team when you see us next.


You can be someone who is using our services now, or has done so in the past.

Renowned Songwriter Grace Petrie to perform at benefit for Survivors’ Network

Survivors’ Network is hosting an exciting event on Sunday 15th May, 2-6pm, to raise awareness and fundraise for their service. The Grace Petrie Cafe Gig in newly opened cafe MADE Brighton, will be a rare opportunity to see Grace Petrie, renowned songwriter and activist, perform in an intimate and informal setting, while raising funds for a worthy cause.

Grace’s music ranges from politics to romance and back again, with the occasional sing-a-long thrown in too.
