How We Can Help
If you’ve experienced rape or sexual abuse it may be hard to talk to your close friends or family.
We provide free, safe, professional support, counselling, information and ISVA services for women and girls over 13 who have experienced any form of sexual violence at any time in their lives. This means that we support women and girls who have experienced sexual violence recently and/or in the past, this includes childhood sexual abuse.
We believe that you should decide what the right kind of support is for you, this could be a combination of our services.
We are for all women including, but not limited to, women who identify as Lesbian, Bi, Trans and/or Questioning; Black, Minority Ethnic and Refugee women; and disabled women.
Our definition of women-only includes Trans women and non-binary people who identify that women’s services are right for them.
We can also provide information to those Supporting a Survivor of Sexual Violence.
