We offer help called advocacy if you are between 5 and 18 and have reported to the police. Our trained staff are called advocates and as well as supporting you, they can also help your family and friends through police and court processes.
Our Independent Sexual Violence Advocates (ISVAs) make sure your voice is heard; they will help you understand what people are saying to you and help you say what you want to say. They will make sure your needs are met and that you are listened to.
Our advocates can help if you need:
• Someone to listen to you and help you find the support you need
• Help with understanding police procedures; we can arrange to be there when you talk to the police
• Help with understanding the court process; we can arrange a visit to the court before your trial so you know what to expect. We can also be there to support you and your witnesses when you give evidence
• To know what is going on with the police investigation or court case
• Someone to talk to your school or college for you
• Someone to arrange health care appointments for you and to go along with you
• Someone to find support for your parents or friends
