Specialist Support for Sexually Abused Refugee & Asylum Seekers
|Organisation||RSVP (Rape and Sexual Violence Project)|
PO Box 9558
We offer support to asylum seekers and refugees who have experienced sexual violence, rape or sexual torture in any country.
Counselling – If you are female we offer free, individual and confidential counselling. Our counsellors don’t judge or give advice; they will explore your feelings and support you in the decisions you make.
Practical Advice – We have close links with the charity Hope Projects, who can help with
Housing, destitution, isolation, health, legal and immigration issues
Free Connections Social Group for female and male survivors – Since the trauma of sexual violence, rape, and sexual torture can be isolating, especially when you’re in a new country, we run a group called ‘Connections’ to help you settle and feel part of a community. They are a great way to get to know the area, meet new people, make new friends, and try out different fun activities, all in a safe environment. We also use interpreters when required so you can be supported in your own language. The Connections Social Group meets every month.
