Service Update: 17/06/24

We are so sorry that our support and advocacy services for adults aged 19 and over are now closed to all new referrals until 31st July.

Please note that the following services remain open and continue to accept referrals:

  • Rise Up project- support and advocacy for young people aged 11 to 18
  • First language support in Polish.

We are working hard towards being able to reopen our adult support and advocacy services in August. In the interim, we have included some information below about other services which can offer support and also some weblinks to useful resources about sexual violence and ways of coping.
