About us

Based near Bromley, Kent, we are currently the only charity in the UK delivering a proven programme that empowers survivors holistically. We focus on mindset, nutrition, fitness and stress management; we work with the whole person, mind and body. These transformative programmes provide the springboard to move through your trauma to a more peaceful and positive way of life. Our courses are conducted in safe spaces and available free of charge. They are led by experts who have themselves lived-experience and worked through this process.

Our secondary work is to raise awareness and educate stakeholders such as social workers, the Police, specialist support services and Government about the impact of abuse on a survivors’ mental, emotional, physical health and in fact their whole life.

We work with partners, carers, family members and supporters to improve their ability to support survivors of all forms of abuse.

We facilitate bespoke programmes for organisations to improve the health, wellbeing and resilience of their workforce.

Meet the Trustees

Chris Tuck – Founder, Author, Trauma-Informed Health and Wellness Coach

As a survivor of all forms of childhood abuse and neglect; growing up in 3 domestic violent households, I sadly know how challenging it is to lead a normal everyday life. With a background in accountancy, I re-trained as a health coach because of the health challenges I faced as a result of the abuse I had suffered.

I have been a Health Coach since 2003 in my local community and have worked within the Priory Psychiatric Hospital Group delivering fitness programmes to the inpatients. I now raise awareness about the impacts of childhood abuse on the victims/ survivors’ mental, emotional & physical health. I am a regular speaker/presenter on TV and national, regional conferences, and events.

I have been a Consultant to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse since its inception in 2015 as a member of the Victims and Survivors Consultative Panel.

Diane Sealey – Communications and Media Relations

With a background in education I have been working in the field of PR for over 25 years. I am passionate about ‘putting back’ and over the years I have worked with various charities. My experience includes working with End Child Poverty – a coalition of the UK’s largest children’s charities and AbilityNet – supporting disabled people by helping them to use digital technology at work, at home or in education. I’m passionate and proud to be involved with Survivors Of Abuse – an organisation for positive change, and I am excited about the help and support this charity will provide helping Survivors of Abuse to heal and fulfil their potential; everyone deserves that.
