Our Advocacy service is here to support women and girls over the age of 16 who are thinking of reporting an incident of sexual violence to the police, or have already done so. Our ISVAs provide independent, specialist, trauma-informed advice and advocacy to help women feel empowered, supported, and in control of their choices throughout the duration of their case’s process through the criminal justice system.
