About Us

Survive is an innovative local charity working towards freedom from domestic abuse for children, young people and families in Bristol and South Gloucestershire. We offer practical and emotional support, information and education for children and young people who are experiencing or have experienced domestic violence and abuse.


We are the lead domestic abuse agency for South Gloucestershire supporting children and young people helping them to recover from their experiences of domestic abuse. We have over 40 years experience and have a range of services including one to one support, group support for children and young people and work in schools. It is our aim to offer emotional and practical support to children and young people affected by domestic abuse whether they are in crisis now or are affected by historical abuse.

As well as a range of services for people experiencing abuse now, we are very keen to ensure that we do as much as we can to prevent abuse and so we are working in schools and with the police, the health and housing sector and funders to develop an understanding of the triggers and to support young people to know the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships.
