** Temporary closure of advocacy project **
Unfortunately due to a high demand for our services, our advocacy project is unfortunately also closed to new referrals until 7 October.
We appreciate that waiting for our referral list to reopen can be difficult. Please see the link below for a list of alternative services that you may wish to contact in the interim.
If you have been assaulted in the past 7 days, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also contact the Rape Crisis Scotland national helpline on 08088 01 03 02 (open every day from 6pm until midnight) for support.
List of alternative advocacy services (updated May 2019)
Our advocacy service offers support to survivors who are considering engaging, or have engaged, with the criminal justice system following an experience of sexual violence that has happened at any time in your life.
If you are considering speaking to the police, or have already reported, you can have support from our advocacy service. Our dedicated advocacy service can offer advice, information and support before, during and after: reporting to the police; police investigation; the court process. You can contact the advocacy service whether or not you have received support from the centre before.
