In light of the government’s ongoing advice that people should work at home where possible and deploy sensible social distancing measures, the SARSVL office remains closed to ensure the health and safety of all of our staff, trustees, volunteers and service users.

SARSVL continues to provide services on a remote basis where this is possible.

The SARSVL Phone, Text and Email Helpline is currently open Monday 12-2pm, Tuesday 8-10pm, Wednesday 6-8pm and Sunday 6.30-8.30pm.

We are here to support you and should there be any changes to these opening times, we will continue to update our website and social media accounts regarding the Helpline service delivery.

If you need support outside of these hours, the national Rape Crisis Helpline is open every day between 12- 14:30 and 19:00 – 21:30. You can call them on 0808 802 9999 or contact them by webchat:
