In 2019, we welcomed the first our ambassador to our chairty, and we look forward to working with many more in the future.

Our ambassadors share in Kinergy's desire to break down the silence and taboo of speaking about sexual violence, to give a voice to survivors, and to promote support for survivors to ensure they can heal from their trauma.

Joe Sims, Actor

Joe Sims was born in Bristol and raised in Kingswood. He attended Sir Bernard Lovell School, where he was inspired to act by a drama teacher who introduced him to the Bristol Old Vic company. Sims later attended Filton College before studying at Middlesex University and under scholarship at the University of San Francisco.
Joe is an accomplished actor who recently play his role in ITV's drama Broadchurch where he played plumber Nige Carter. In 2012, he won an Offie (People's favorite male performance) for his performance as an accused killer in As We Forgive Them, at the Arcola Theatre in London. In addition to his appearances on TV, in the theatre, and in films, Sims has more than 100 radio credits to his name, including a run on the British radio drama The Archers. Joe was nominated for both Best Actor at the 2018 for his portrayal of Charlie Hammond in Oliver Park: Easter Riots & Best Supporting Actor at the 2017 BBC Audio Drama Awards for his portrayal of a suicidal boxer in Al Smith's award winning drama Lifelines.

Having a greater understanding of the impact of sexual abuse in society after working on Broadchurch, Kinergy reached out to see if I would be interested in supporting them. Kinergy is a charity based in Kingswood with a huge passion for supporting survivors. I can see there is a huge demand for support with 120 individuals currently on their waiting list. In my position I will hopefully be able to give voice to raise awareness for the charity and for survivors of sexual abuse.

Kinergy has been around for 23 years and will offer you a space to explore your thoughts and feelings. They have a warm inviting space with a team of amazing counsellors.
