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 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.

Cambridge Rape Crisis offers the following referral routes for professionals:

Independent Sexual Violence Advocate/Children and Young People’s Independent Sexual Violence Advocate – go to the Cambridge & Peterborough Rape Crisis Partnership website and complete the online form.

Counselling – available for women and girls in Cambridge, Huntingdon and Ely; download the professional referral form and return to

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