Chester Sexual Abuse Support Service (CSASS) was founded in the mid-1990s and is a registered charity, no. 1133584.
We are members of Rape Crisis England and Wales (RCEW), and adhere to their National Standards. We are also an organisational member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
We’re a team of friendly staff, specialist counsellors and volunteers, and trustees.
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.
CSASS is a women-led, feminist organisation. We recognise sexual violence is an abuse of power, and is the cause and consequence of gender inequality. We promote substantive equality by providing women-only spaces, alongside inclusive spaces, and striving to improve accessibility to our services.
Supportline and LiveChat services are open, and we can be contacted as usual. We know this is an especially hard time for survivors. Please do get in touch if you need a chat.
Remote and phone support is available for current clients while our face to face work is paused, and we’ll be taking new referrals soon. Please follow our social media for self-care resources, news about services and opportunities to help. We’ll be back as soon as we can.
