We’re delighted at UK SAYS NO MORE to have YWHP on board with UK SAYS NO MORE as a campaign partner.
YWHP is a sexual abuse support service offering a range of specialist support to those who need it. Find out a little more about YWHP and the work they do:
YWHP Sexual Abuse Support Service is based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, we are one of the only specialist services in the UK offering therapeutic provision and supported accommodation to young women aged 16-25yrs and their children, who have been affected by sexual abuse, sexual exploitation and domestic abuse.
The difference we make:
“The YWHP provides a unique service to very vulnerable young women and their children that is much needed and not widely available… the dedication of staff to be client needs led is inspiring”
Service Manager, 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“…I was shy and withdrawn when I moved in.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”
