Domestic and Sexual Abuse Counselling Service 

For adults living in Scarborough Whitby and Ryedale 

Who can access this service

The waiting list for this service is currently closed due to high demand. If you are a victim of crime including sexual or domestic violence please see our service Counselling for Victims of Crime. See also below the Support Work offered by our partners Survive.

Survive Support Work


Survive support work can be accessed before, after or instead of counselling and is available to survivors of sexual violence as well as their partners, friends and family members.


Survive's trained and knowledgeable support workers can provide emotional support, explore coping mechanisms and grounding techniques with you and discuss options for reporting or not reporting to the police. They offer 1-1 appointments every 2-4 weeks for up to six months (in person in Malton, online or over the phone). Referrals can be made using the online referral form and please mention Community Counselling in the final box on the form 'How did you hear about Survive?'.


Thanks to Lloyds Bank Foundation, Survive and Community Counselling are able to work together on this initiative to help adult survivors rebuild their lives after rape, sexual assault or child sexual abuse.
