Service update: temporary closure of SIA project for survivors from black and minority ethnic backgrounds

  • News

Today (Wednesday 6 March), we have had to take the very difficult decision to close our Still I Am (SIA) Project waiting list to new referrals. We are having to do this due to capacity.

If you are already on a waiting list for SIA, you will remain on the list. If you have any concerns or questions about your referral, please email sia@ercc.scot.

Please note our Advocacy Service, and outreach support in East Lothian and Midlothian are still temporarily closed to new referrals. If you’ve any concerns or questions about your advocacy, ELSAS or MSAS referral, please email support@ercc.scot.

If you have experienced a rape or sexual assault within the last 14 days, please let us know as all our services are open to survivors of recent incidents.

Some of our other services are still open to new referrals:

– Edinburgh Adult Service

– STAR service for young people aged 12 – 18 

– Student Survivors project 

– Recent rape or sexual assault within the last 14 days 

We appreciate that waiting for our referral list to reopen can be difficult. Please see here for alternative sources of support. You can also contact the Rape Crisis Scotland national helpline on 08088 01 03 02 (open every day from 5pm until midnight) for support.

All our specialist support services are free and any contribution you can make helps us to keep supporting survivors of rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse. You can donate via JustGiving or if you’re interested in supporting our work through fundraising you can email us at info@ercc.scot.
