About

Survivors Library is an international group of survivors who collect and create resources by, for, and about survivors of trauma, abuse, and assault. A resource can be anything: books, support groups, events, art, music, podcasts, hotlines, organisations, and more. Our collection of resources is available online for anyone who is interested in learning more about trauma, abuse, or assault. Survivors Library was founded in Edinburgh, Scotland, where a physical collection is privately housed and in-person events take place.

We prioritise the collection and creation of resources by, for, and about survivors who experience other oppressions such as racism, transphobia, anti-sex work sentiments, fatphobia, ableism, classism, misogyny, homophobia, biphobia, or anti-LGBTQIA sentiments.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, we’re focusing on supporting survivors by running weekly chatrooms, developing our collections and social media to get survivors the information they need at home, and funding applications: find out more about getting involved.
