In memory of Jill Saward

Jill Saward, a tireless campaigner for people who experienced sexual violence, died on 5 January 2017 at the age of 51 after suffering a subarachnoid haemorrhage.

This site is an archive of Jill’s website at the time of her death.

Her main website – – will be used by her husband, Gavin Drake, to provide updates on the urgent and continuing campaign to reduce levels of sexual violence and improve the treatment and care of victims and survivors.

A charitable organisation is being created in Jill’s name to keep her unique and independent voice alive and to ensure that the campaign continues.
