It's easy to access our services at Surviving United and best of all they're free. Just pop along to one of our Drop-ins or walking groups, or you can use the number given to get in contact with Angela to arrange a phone session.
We here at Surviving United are a local community peer group, set up by and for survivors of sexual, domestic or psychological abuse. We are open to anyone regardless of race, colour, religion, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, ancestry, age and last but not least disability.
Our groups are gender led (so for female groups we have a female facilitator and vice versa) drop-ins at both The Kirkley Centre & Great Yarmouth Library in Great Yarmouth.
These meetings are purely for that specific gender, you don't have to stay for the whole session, and refreshments are provided.

Bags of Help Grant
Surviving United would like to thank Tesco and all the public that popped those little blue coins in our collection box which has enabled us to start our new peer support group P.A.F.S (Partners & Family of Survivors).
Thanks to Suffolk Community Foundation, we have been able to fund our extra day support group, twice monthly. This will enable those survivors who need our support but are unable to attend the evening group a place for them to attend and feel safe.
LD Rope Trust
We would like to thank the LD Rope trust for their generous support for funding our office/hub, without this financial support there would be no one to one or day group support in a private setting for survivors to attend.
Surviving United would like to thank the National Lottery - The BIG Lottery Fund, for supporting our cause through the last two years. This funding has made it possible to run both separate, male and female groups in Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth.
Surviving United's Social Media
Surviving United's Past.
We at Surviving United just keep trying to provide support and advice to those in need as often as possible. We're constantly trying to raise enough money to keep these groups going, and we accomplish this through funding and fundraising.
We've recently raised enough money to open a support group aimed at the partners and family members of those supporting people who have been abused, we couldn't have done this without the generosity of all the kind people who donated via JustGiving, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We now have a small team of volunteers, each of whom have their own special skills that allow us to keep running each month. These range from our Fundraisers all the way to our Social Media Guru. If you would like to help us by volunteering your time, please use the contact form to let us know!
We have a very simple dream for Surviving United, and that's to be there when you need us.
To be that rock when you need someone to talk to. We want to help as many people as possible,
the families of survivors, friends and most importantly the survivors themselves.
