Support for professionals

The most important and simple thing you can do to help a survivor of sexual violence is to listen and believe.

Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre supports survivors using the empowerment model. This is a holistic approach, with the goal of giving survivors the choices of which services they use, who they speak to and how they live their lives. We trust survivors to make the right decisions for themselves.

We offer the following support options for professional referrals:

  • Our ISVA service is available for anyone, any age or gender, throughout Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
  • Our counselling service is available for women and girls in Cambridge and Ely.

To refer into either of these services, please go to the Cambridge & Peterborough Rape Crisis Partnership website and complete the online form.

Please ensure that the survivor is aware of the referral and has consented to it before completing the form.
