In these exceptional times, we have made the difficult decision to make some alterations to our service.
In order to be as resilient as possible in these challenging times, from end of day April 10th we will be pausing much of our ongoing support service but we will be extending our support line hours.
The new hours from Monday 13th April will be 9.30 – 12.30 and 1.30 – 4.30 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and Wednesdays 9.30am till 12.30pm on

We will continue to take new referrals via our support line for when our ongoing support sessions resume. Our advocacy staff will continue to provide information about the criminal justice system and will move to working in a focused way on individual tasks with people in order to accommodate the increase in need we foresee for medical advocacy. We will also be increasing our social media presence to provide information on coping in a crisis and to share messages of connection in a time where many are isolated.
This has been a painful decision for us, but we felt it was better to plan for a reduction in our service than unexpectedly find ourselves in a position where we couldn’t provide any service. This will allow us to sustain a service which is available to everyone in the event that certain staff become unable to work or certain survivors are unable to commit to regular sessions due to sickness or caring responsibilities. Please don’t doubt that although we are physically apart, we are so with you in spirit in this incredibly difficult time.
