welcome to stay brave
We're here to give the under-served a voice. When it comes to domestic abuse and sexual assault, we want to represent male and LGBTQ+ victims, and help to break down barriers.
We won't stop until all victims have the help that they need and the respect they deserve. We will be brave.
We are not a crisis service, but we can help you find the resources and frontline support you may need.
We won't give up until all survivors have the help they need and the respect they deserve.
It's our mission to erase the barriers survivors of rape, sexual assault and domestic abuse, can face when asking for help. We do this by campaigning for better services, crafting policy and working with decision makers to improve access for every survivor.
Stay Brave is not a crisis service. If you feel uneasy or are struggling with your situation, or need someone to talk to we recommend you speak to The Samaritans by calling 116 123 or by visiting their website.
You can find out about more services that could help by clicking the link below. This outlines the various frontline services that may be able to help - and will also point you in the direction if you're looking to report a crime to the police.
Walking Brave - Our Annual Fundraising Event
Every year, the stay brave community comes together to take on a challenge that makes every step count in the aim of breaking down the barriers that survivors face when seeking help and reporting abuse. Our 10 mile walking brave challenge is the perfect opportunity for us to raise the profile of abuse survivors from under-served communities and help raise vital funds to help stay brave achieve their mission.
Walking Brave returned in 2020, as a virtual event, helping us to raise over £2,000 to support the work of the Stay Brave team and help us to support people affected by abuse and exploitation. Find out more about walking brave below:
