Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs)

Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs) are a great source of ongoing practical and emotional support.  The ISVAs who support people across the West Midlands area are provided by four organisations, Coventry Rape and Sexual AbuseCentre (CRASAC), Black Country Sexual Violence Service, Rape and Sexual Violence Project (RSVP) and Crisis Point.  They are independent from the Police and can support you through the criminal justice process; police, crown prosecution service, court services and may be able to attend appointments with you for support.

ISVA's are not available on site at Horizon but may be able come to Horizon with you if you have already contacted them. Usually you will be referred to them via SARC after an attendance here if you should so choose.
