Temporary closure of our Advocacy Service Waiting Lists

We’ve had to take the very difficult decision to close our advocacy service to new referrals. If you’re already on the advocacy waiting list, you will remain on the list. If you’ve any concerns or questions about your advocacy referral, please contact us on advocacy@ercc.scot

If you’ve experienced a rape or sexual assault within the last 14 days and would like support around reporting to the police, please let us know as the advocacy service is still open to support survivors of recent incidents.

All our other services remain open to new referrals. 

Appointments and referrals

To make or cancel an appointment, or to make a referral, please text our service mobile on 07966 067 301 or call our call back phone on 0131 556 9437 and leave a message for us. Please leave your contact details such as your mobile number or email address for us to contact you on. Calls won’t be answered but we check this each working day.

You can also contact us via our secure webform and someone will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

You can use the form to refer someone else.  Please ensure that the person you are referring has agreed for you to pass their details to us.

Please note, we do not have the space for drop-ins and support is only offered by appointment.

Email support

If you’d like to email our support service about making an appointment or referral please email support@ercc.scot. You’ll receive an automatic response to your email on the day it is sent and a fuller reply thereafter.

Some spam filters can prevent emails from us being delivered if they think the content is abusive e.g. if they contain sexual words so please check your email’s spam or junk folder as occasionally our replies will go in there.

If you’ve problems receiving a reply please feel free to contact us again or leave a message on our call back phone: 0131 556 9437 or you can text our support service mobile: 07966 067 301. Please let us know if it is okay for us to call you, and if so whether it is okay for us identify who we are or leave a message. Otherwise, we won’t  leave a message if we can’t get in touch with you.
