The University Outreach ISVA is an independent point of contact for anyone who has been affected by sexual violence and she will be offering emotional support and advocacy to anyone who is in crisis and their supporters. It is important for anyone who has been affected by sexual violence to be able to feel that they are heard, believed and supported and that they are aware of all of their options with regards to reporting, or not. If you do choose to report the ISVA can help to guide you through the criminal justice process.
Charlotte will be offering on-going, confidential emotional support and there are various ways that you can get in touch with her to talk through your options. Charlotte is based between Wellbeing Services, Students' Union Advice Centre and CRASAC so that survivors and their supporters have the option of seeing her wherever they feel most comfortable.
Referrals into the ISVA service can also be made through the CRASAC helpline on 024 7627 7777. The helpline is open Monday to Friday 10am - 2pm and Monday and Thursday evenings 6-8pm. There is a voicemail service out of opening times so you can leave your number and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. Referrals can also be made directly through Wellbeing Support Services or Students' Union Advice Centre.
