Sue Lambert Trust is a Norfolk based charity providing support for survivors of sexual abuse.

Experiencing rape, sexual assault or violence is extremely traumatic.  Whether a recent assault or past abuse, many people find it difficult to cope.  The Sue Lambert Trust is here to help.

There are around 900 reports to police of recent rape, sexual assault or childhood abuse in the county each year and it is recognised that there is significant underreporting of such crimes.  Many of the clients we see have not reported to any other agency, and are therefore not included in the police figures.  There is a great need for our services.

Sue Lambert Trust is the only local charity offering free of charge support for survivors of sexual violence and has been operating for over 20 years.  In 2007 Norwich Rape Crisis amalgamated with MPower  to form the Sexual Violence Alliance.  We changed our name to the Sue Lambert Trust in January 2013.
