Rural Domestic & Sexual Abuse Recovery Project

You can still get contact our Support Worker during the Covid-19 crisis.  We have put measures in place to minimise risks to everybody and we are offering telephone appointments.

Have you ever experienced domestic violence or sexual abuse and would like some support taking the next steps in your life?

Or do you know of someone who may need that support?

Is this an issue you care about and would like to raise awareness of in your local rural community?

SCDA is working in partnership with Action in Rural Sussex (AiRS) and the Rita Project, funded by the Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC) to raise awareness and provide support, particularly in rural communities where access to support may be limited.
