Testimonials

I have found the organisation to be indispensable to me. My ISVA is particularly good as she helps me with all manner of practical day to day requirements. She is very professional and has a depth of knowledge which I find reassuring. I have used other support services, and without a doubt RoSA is by far the best.

Female survivor
I would like to say Thank you to all at RoSA that has helped me through this difficult journey. I applaud all of you for doing what you do. You are angels living on earth.

Male survivor
Thank you very, very much for yesterday, being so patient and encouraging and allowing me the space to go to the Club, in the way I wanted. It made such a difference, and yes, really glad I did it and enjoyed myself.
