Supporting adults and children affected by rape, sexual abuse and sexual assault since 1993.
We are the largest sexual violence support provider in Wales, with 30 years’ experience of delivering specialist therapeutic support to adults and children affected by the trauma of rape, sexual assault or sexual abuse.
As a charitable organisation, we offer a full range of free specialist crisis, advocacy, wellbeing and counselling services. We are widely regarded throughout the UK as a leading organisation in our field. We support nearly 4,000 people each year.
Beyond that, we use our experience and expertise to train and educate others on the wide-ranging impact of rape and sexual abuse, and use our voice to advocate for those who are often silenced by stigma.
Our dedicated team of over 150 staff and volunteers do everything that they can to ensure that our clients receive an excellent service that meets their needs; we feel that they deserve no less. For more information on our team click here.
We opened the first SARC in Wales in 2005.
In 2009 our former Manager Libby Jones (pictured) was awarded the MBE on behalf of New Pathways for outstanding services to victims of rape and sexual abuse in Wales.
Over the last 3 decades, our services have grown to include advocacy, therapeutic and support services for adults, young people and children. Our services are inclusive and we support people of all ages, genders, social backgrounds, ethnic backgrounds, religions and beliefs, disabilities and sexual orientations.
Why do we do what we do?
Because people deserve to be believed, listened to, and to live a full life beyond their experience of sexual violence.
What do we want to achieve?
Our vision is a world without sexual violence.
