The Survivors Hub Bedford

The Survivors Hub is a monthly face-to-face peer support group for up to eight women who are looking to connect with others on a similar journey. We aim to provide a safe and welcoming meeting place where survivors can express what they are experiencing, feel emotionally supported and understood. Through regular monthly meet-ups, bonds can be developed creating a sense of increased social connection and reduced isolation. Coping strategies and skills can be shared to help survivors deal with current life challenges and fulfil their potential.


Each session is structured around a recovery theme that people feel would be helpful to them, and incorporates a holistic modality such as a guided meditation, crystal therapy or sound healing. Over the course of twelve months, with regular attendance,  members should feel empowered and supported with fresh emotional insights, new coping skills and a sense of connection to a community they can trust.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Notice: We are moving meetings online

 Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (Covid-19) health crisis, and the government’s advice on health and safety, we will not be able to host the Survivors Hub in the usual venue. In order to continue the work we have started, supporting each other and developing new coping strategies for managing Complex PTSD, we are inviting to you join us in an online seminar using Skype video on April 8th at the same time, 2.15pm. We still have a few places available. Interviews will be conducted online. See further information below.


 Are you a survivor with a story you would like to share?

 If you can't join us at our Survivors Hub, but you have a story you would like to share, you could consider sending it to us for a new page we are planning called 'Survivor Stories'.

We would like to hear from age 18+ men, women and all sections of the LGBT community.  We know that revisiting the past can be triggering and invoke powerful feelings,

so take care if you feel drawn to doing this, and stop when you need to. All stories will be treated in the strictest confidence, and only published with the agreement of the author.

Please send a synopsis to:
