Chayn started in 2013 to provide survivors of abuse with accurate, diverse and accessible information and support.

We’re proud to co-design resources with survivors of abuse from around the world. Up to 70% of our volunteers are survivors of abuse which means not only are our projects user-centred - they are user-led. We are experts in trauma-informed work.

We create online toolkits and how to guides for women and NGOs, country or theme-specific platforms, and digital services.

Over the past seven years, 360,000 people have accessed our award-winning work online, generating 1.2 million page views. Our digital services, Little Window (a chatbot that helps women search for information) and Soul Medicine (a micro-course platform) are examples of our innovative approach.
