Do you want to make a difference to the lives of young female survivors of sexual abuse? Could you help them develop the skills needed to cope with what has happened to them and build an independent life and positive future?

The Project is semi-supported accommodation, with the tenants living in their own flat, supported by our staff based in the same building.

With your experience of providing emotional support and crisis intervention to vulnerable young women and your knowledge of trauma-informed practice, you will provide practical and emotional support, linking with other staff members and outside agencies to help survivors work towards an independent and happy, successful life.

When you join SAY Women, you join a community providing a warm and welcoming environment for all of our staff and young women. Our values run through every aspect of our attitude, approach and service provision, empowering our young women and staff with Courage, Compassion and Connection.
