  • Organisation Name
    Chester Sexual Abuse Support Service (CSASS)
  • Basic description
    Chester Sexual Abuse Support Service (CSASS) was founded in the mid-1990s and is a registered charity. We are affiliated to Rape Crisis England and Wales, and adhere to their National Standards. We are also an organisational member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

    Who we support

    We provide free independent counselling, as well as a telephone support line for any individual aged 18 years and over who has been affected by any form of rape, sexual abuse or sexual violence at any time in their lives. Our core work is with women survivors of sexual violence, and, as such, we provide women-only space on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays.

    We also work to support people who may not necessarily have been abused directly, but who might have witnessed the abuse (partner or sibling) or been affected by someone’s disclosure to them (professional such as a nurse, social worker etc).

    In addition, we provide an empowering, supportive community, with opportunities for participation in regular groups, one-off events or in awareness-raising work.

    We are based in Chester city centre in an easily accessible and discrete location. There are no geographical restrictions on who we can support, so we work with individuals who are living in a range of locations including North Wales, Shropshire, East and West Cheshire, Merseyside, and Chester.
