To protect the privacy of our clients, actors play the survivors role. However, all scripts are genuine and stories are true. Safeline wish to thank the actors taking part in our videos, helping us to raise awareness of rape and sexual abuse.
1 in 4 women are survivors of rape or sexual abuse, that’s 8 million women in the UK. Safeline have over 20 years’ experience of supporting women while they rebuild their lives. We work with female survivors of all ages, backgrounds and identities and can also offer support to the family and friends around you who have been affected by what has happened. No matter who you are or how your life has been impacted by these issues, please get in touch with us. All our services are free.
People react to traumatic events in all manner of complex ways and you may feel fear, shame, anger, disgust, guilt, numbness, have nightmares or flashbacks. Whatever your experience, we are here to support you so that you do not have to go through these things alone. After working with Safeline clients often say that they have healed or moved on from what happened, regained their hope for the future and have reclaimed their life.
Our team of specialist staff have a caring and non-judgemental approach and there are a range of ways in which we can support you:
Helpline and Online Support Services – Our friendly helpline and online staff are here to listen to you, via telephone, email, text message and online chat. They offer information, signposting and emotional support and can also tell you more about other Safeline services. Contact them now

ISVA Service: Supporting and Reporting – Our ISVA team provide independent emotional and practical support and assistance to anyone who has experienced sexual violence and who is either thinking about reporting the crimes to the police or have already given a statement. They make sure you have the best possible advice, information, access to services and support that you need and can act as an advocate for you when dealing with other agencies such as the police. People who have used our ISVA service say things like ‘I couldn’t believe all they things did to help me’ – find out more on the ISVA page.
