Escape has been set up by two sisters who left Jehovah’s Witnesses after enduring a childhood of emotional, psychological and sexual abuse at the hands of some within the religious group.

Having each other for support enabled them to build a life outside of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Realizing that not everyone has such support, they founded Escape.

The purpose of Escape is to provide support to others wanting, or who are forced, to leave Jehovah’s Witnesses, and other high control groups. Whatever reason for leaving, it can be a confusing and turbulent time for you. Escape wants to be a calm, safe space to help you explore your options outside of Jehovah’s Witnesses, or a similar high control group.

One of the founders was the first in the UK to win a civil case for historical Child Sexual Abuse against Jehovah’s Witnesses, the details of which can be found here. She also gave evidence to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sex Abuse (IICSA) regarding her experience growing up in that community.
