Student Survivors Project

The Student Survivors project offers counselling support to university students and students from Edinburgh College. We support all students of all genders aged 16 and over who have experienced sexual violence at any time in their lives.

What we offer

We offer counselling support sessions, where you can use the time any way you choose. Support sessions last for 50 minutes and happen at the same time each week. Support may be offered in person, or remotely by video or phone.

We offer:
• An initial standalone introductory meeting to let us get to know each other, for you to hear more about the service and for us to find out about your support needs.  

• Up to 18 further counselling support sessions, as soon as a counselling support worker becomes available.

Getting in touch and referrals

If you are currently enrolled as a university student or at Edinburgh College you can refer yourself for support by emailing studentsurvivors@ercc.scot or texting 07378 905 664. You can also be referred with your permission through your universities or colleges well-being and counselling services.
