MISSION STATEMENT

NO MORE VICTIMS

YHL Circles of Support and Accountability mission is "to ensure that any person, who has caused, or is at risk of causing, sexual harm, and is considered eligible for support*, will have a Circle of Support and Accountability available to work with them".

* 'eligible' means that the person has been identified as suitable, has acknowledged their past sexually harmful behaviour or potential to offend, has agreed to participate and is motivated to change this behaviour


Yorkshire, Humberside and Lincolnshire Circles of Support and Accountability is a community response to sexual harm, working in partnership with criminal justice agencies.

We aim to increase community awareness and reduce the risk of future sexual harm. We do this by recruiting and training volunteers to support and holding to account those who have acknowledged their sexually harmful thoughts or potential to offend (known as ‘Core Members’) and who are committed to safely leading responsible, non-harmful, productive lives.

Our method is a true community response to safety.

We also offer organisation training and consultancy. Please see our Training & Consultancy page for more information.

APPLY TO VOLUNTEER

Many people believe that society should lock up sex offenders and throw away the key. But that isn’t the reality: the average sentence is 5 years and 3 months. Circles of Support and Accountability work with an offender when they are released into the community to minimise their risk of causing more victims.
