YWHP Sexual Abuse Support Service is based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

We are one of the only specialist services in the UK offering supported accommodation and therapeutic provision to young women aged 16-25 years and their children, who have been affected by sexual abuse, sexual exploitation and intimate partner abuse.

The difference we make…
