TRF Mutual Survivors Support Collective
A network for survivors to both get and give 1-1 support, solidarity and connection.
The type of support (and accessibility) that survivor services and mental health services currently offer is not working for many people and we need radical alternatives. Now
Survivors tell us that they are desperate for something different. We are expanding what the Resilience Fund does and are exploring new ways of finding and creating mutual support collectively. Support that is individual, support where we are in control, support where we are able to have real connection and support that is accessible now.
This is why we are setting up TRF Mutual Survivors Support Collective to link up survivors with each other, to find ways to support one another. Ourselves.
This project is aimed at creating connections between survivors and building our strength and resilience collectively, in non-hierarchical ways.
How it works:
We will link you up with another survivor to support and be supported by. It is entirely up to the both of you how you want to work this and what it will look like for you.
You will both set your own boundaries and work out what each other’s needs are in terms of giving and receiving support.
This is not therapy or a professional support service. This is the opportunity to be connected to and have conversations with another survivor/human who has also experienced trauma, to find your own way to offer each other the space to talk and listen. You will control how this works for you. There are no set rules. This is an exchange and a space to create the specific kind of support you need.
If you want to be linked with someone or just want to know more email us email@example.com. Otherwise text us (Bryony +447939894167 or Meg +447928487180). We will give you a bit more information about how it works and you can see if you think it is right for you at the moment.
