History

S.H.E. UK was founded in 1998 by Jacqui Lewis and Ezzie Bainbridge, who discovered a severe lack of a holistic approach to the devastating effects of childhood sexual abuse. Jacqui is now a trustee. As the years have passed, our services have developed from a simple meeting of women with shared experiences to a wide range of activities, groups and facilities identified by the needs of the women who come to us. These include: one-to-one befriending; crisis support; drop-in services in Mansfield and Worksop; creative workshops; skills & training workshops; creative therapy groups; personal development courses; volunteering opportunities and a mentoring service. All of these services are delivered by highly trained professionals with years of counselling and therapeutic experience, in either a paid or unpaid capacity.
