We are still here for you
We are still committed to being here for women and girls who have experienced sexual violence.
We are aiming to maintain our services while following government guidelines regarding Coronavirus. We won’t be meeting anyone in person but we are working in different ways to make sure we are still able to support women and girls.
Our services that are usually delivered face-to-face, Counselling, Group Work and Practical & Emotional Support, are still working with women and girls. We have been in touch with all of the women and girls we are currently working with to discuss how we can continue to support them.
We remain open for referrals for Counselling, Group Work and Practical & Emotional Support. Once we have taken a referral a member of staff from that team will be in touch to discuss how we are working. Please be aware there may be longer waiting times for some of our services.
Our Helpline and Email Support Services continue to be open at their usual times although at a slightly reduced capacity.
