We are still here for you

We are still committed to being here for women and girls who have experienced sexual violence.

We will continue to deliver services while keeping everyone safe so we won’t be meeting anyone in person.   

Our services that are usually delivered face-to-face, CounsellingGroup Work and Practical & Emotional Support, are being delivered over the phone and and via online secure rooms to provide a face to face service.

In January 2021 we will assess whether it is the right time to begin transitioning our face-to-face services services back to in person delivery.  To keep you, our staff and volunteers safe, this process will being carried out cautiously, please bear with us.

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.
