YWHP Sexual Abuse Support Service is based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

We are one of the only specialist services in the UK offering supported accommodation and therapeutic provision to young women aged 16-25 years and their children, who have been affected by sexual abuse, sexual exploitation and intimate partner abuse.

The difference we make…

Whether young women have children or not, if they are in any kind of difficulty or in need of support YWHP has always been my first port of call… - Social worker, Sheffield
I was shy and withdrawn when I moved in.  I am now very confident, can do most things by myself, like appointments, education, and problem solving and keeping myself safe - YWHP Client, Sheffield
I feel safe and secure here, which means I can concentrate on living and not being scared. - YWHP Client, Sheffield
