A client’s story…Tell It Like It Is?

“Wow! 3 months tomorrow since I moved into the project house! I wasn’t really sure what to expect and to say I was a bit apprehensive would be an understatement.  So, as daunting as it was, it was a very good surprise to realise just how friendly and supportive everyone was, both staff and other residents.

YWHP on twitter

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I was shy and withdrawn when I moved in.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

How we do it

We offer a range of services to help young women get back on their feet.

Your help means a lot

With your help we can provide safe places for women to live, emotional support and practical help; we can continue encouraging independence and building confidence to get on with their lives.
