CRCC is working in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) to support student survivors. Almost two thirds (62%) of students and graduates experience sexual violence at university in the UK, which is why it’s crucial that students have access to specialised independent support.
The ARU Independent Sexual Violence Advocate (ISVA) supports current ARU students who have been subjected to sexual violence, whether recent or historic. The ARU ISVA is best placed to support you if you are considering reporting to the university, or if you would benefit from practical advocacy at university, such as applying to move accommodation or applying for exceptional circumstances. Additionally, she can support you with reporting to the police, and with advocacy needs which are external to ARU. You can learn more about the ARU ISVA and the support she offers here: Harassment support – ARU.
Please see the Advocacy section on this website to learn more about how an ISVA can support you.
The ARU ISVA supports students at all of the ARU campuses including Chelmsford and Peterborough. When referring via CRCC, on the referral form please ensure that you select the ‘District’ as ‘Cambridge’ even if you live in at another ARU campus. This ensures your referral comes through to the correct team. If you have any queries, please call 01223 313 551.
