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.
For all professional referrals, please ensure the survivor is aware of and has consented to the referral before completing the referral form.
We offer the following support options for professional referrals:
