The SARSVL Advocacy Service has recently reopened their referrals so that women and girls over the age of 16 can be referred in to access their support. The Advocacy Service provides information and emotional and practical support to women and girls over 16 who have made a report of rape or sexual violence to the police, or who are considering making this report. Their specialist support can be in place for the duration of the criminal investigation, and support you to navigate this challenging time and the impact it is having on your life.

To find out more information about our Advocacy service, you can visit this page on our website. If you aren’t sure if Advocacy is for you, or if you have any questions about the service, you can get in touch by emailing
