Partnership with Women’s Centre Cornwall

We are delighted to announce that we are a part of a dynamic group of organisations that has been awarded the new contract to oversee the Independent Sexual Violence Advisor service across Devon & Cornwall from 1st October 2024, led by The Women’s Centre Cornwall.

We are looking forward to working with The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall to ensure that survivors of sexual violence receive excellent specialist support.

Our new partnership brings together the collective expertise of seven highly skilled local organisations:

Women’s Centre Cornwall
Devon Rape Crisis
West Cornwall Women’s Aid
Konnect Communities
The Children’s Society
The Olive Project

We would like to reassure anyone currently working with an ISVA across Devon & Cornwall that your support will continue.

What is an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA)?

Independent Sexual Violence Advisers (ISVAs) provide specialist support to those who have experienced rape, sexual assault or abuse at any time in their life. ISVAs are separate to the Police and can offer the following:

▪ Clear information on the reporting process
▪ Help you to make informed choices
▪ Inform you of your rights
▪ Support you through the justice process
▪ Emotional support around the impact of what has happened to you

Anyone who feels they might need the support of an ISVA can call 0300 303 4626 or get further information at sarchelp.co.uk.
