Sanctuary Support Groups

We are a charitable organisation of survivors for survivors of domestic abuse in ALL its forms. We are based in the Thames Valley and provide support services throughout England and Wales.

Sanctuary is a free monthly, independent, confidential, survivor-led support group for survivors.

Currently several groups meet locally. Please contact us for details.

At Sanctuary you will find a friendly face, a cup of coffee, others in your situation, survivor-led support and advice if you need it, and a safe space to talk openly without judgement.

We do not publish locations or times for safeguarding reasons so please email for details and come along and join us. Complete the self-referral form.
