COVID-19 - SiT’s position statement

Updated November 2020

To all the survivors who access our services and our wider stakeholders - we are here to stay, so dont suffer alone - we are still taking referrals and offering support to survivors. The way we do things may look a little different than what we were all used to but we care just as much and haven’t compromised on quality. We would like to thank you for bearing with us through what has been an incredibly challenging year on many levels. Personally I am extremely proud of our staff team and therapists who have rolled up their sleeves and continued to deliver compassionate, timely and excellent support to our clients. Until further notice we will continue to deliver all of our services online or over the phone to ensure the safety of survivors and our staff.



A very safe welcome to Survivors in Transition.
You are not alone.

We understand how much courage it has taken to access our website, with this in mind we have tried our best to make it as safe, useful and supportive for you as possible.

You’ve made a big step in your healing and towards breaking free from your abuse by just being here.

You really are an inspiration – you are breaking the silence and remember – it is NOT your shame.
