Due to increasing demand for our Advocacy service, our team of Independent Sexual Violence Advocates (ISVAs) will now be extending their support to 16 and 17 year old women who are either wanting to discuss reporting to the police, or who have already reported.

Our ISVA service has been active since Spring 2015, providing support to women in Leeds over the age of 18. Over the years, the need for support for young women who wish to report or consider reporting an instance of sexual violence to the police has been growing. Thanks to funders and donations, we have now been able to expand our Advocacy service to work with women over the age of 16.

ISVA support can help you to know your rights and understand the choices and decisions you might be looking to make surrounding your case. Our specialist service will ensure that your voice is heard and that you are in control of your life and your choices.
