Our North London rape crisis service offers a range of services to women and girls 13+ who have experienced any form of sexual violence at any time in their lives.
Our North London Rape Crisis team work with women and girls over the age of 13 who have experienced any form of sexual violence at any point in their lives. This includes child sexual abuse, recent and non-recent rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, women involved in prostitution, trafficking and female genital mutilation.
The Rape Crisis service runs a free and anonymous helpline open daily to offer support as well as a regular caller service. The helpline provides specialist emotional support and confidential information about options and services available.
The Rape Crisis Service has 5 Independent Sexual Violence Advocates (ISVAS), co-located with partners including police and children's centres across Enfield, Haringey, Barnet, Islington, Camden, Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea.
Specialist advocates, counsellors, group therapists and helpline workers provide non-directive emotional and practical support and information to help women understand the impact of abuse, recover from the trauma they have experienced, and if a woman chooses, dedicated support through the Criminal Justice System from report to court and afterwards. They also provide support and advice for the friends and family of survivors, as well as professionals working alongside them.
