Support organisations for rape, sexual abuse and assault  victims

“The service has given me time to reflect on the past when I can’t at home.

 

I would have been on my own and probably still self-harming. I was already in uni when I started counselling but may have dropped out if it wasn’t for the support of the ISVA originally and then the counsellor. I think that my recovery process (although it is not over) would not have been as successful if I hadn’t of had the support from this service.”
