Our aims and objectives
We believe that every individual has the right to be free from all forms of sexual violence and abuse.
Everyone who is affected by rape and sexual abuse across Lincolnshire can access appropriate support as needed.
Non-judgemental – within our actions and work.
Supportive and nurturing growth – within our clients, our team, professional agencies and the public.
Challenging – perceptions, beliefs and stigma held and faced by survivors, professional agencies and the public.
• To place survivors at the heart of what we do and seek to empower individuals to work through and beyond their experience of abuse.
• To provide appropriate support to men, women and children affected by rape and sexual abuse in Lincolnshire.
• To provide appropriate support to the friends, families and supporters of survivors of rape and sexual abuse across Lincolnshire.
• To work in partnership with local agencies to create a robust support network across the county.
• To deliver training and education to the public and agencies, raising awareness of the needs of survivors.
• To campaign at both local and national levels; raising awareness of the effects of rape and sexual abuse and also reducing the stigma associated with rape and sexual abuse.
• Increase delivery of counselling and ISVA services by 100% within 1 year.
