We are a specialist provider of free, confidential sexual violence services across Teesside, offering support to men and women aged 14 years and over who have suffered rape or sexual abuse at any time in their lives.

We provide a range of services to meet our clients’ needs, including emotional and practical support, therapeutic counselling, and an Independent Sexual Violence Advisory (ISVA) service to advocate for clients who have reported, or are thinking of reporting their experiences to the police.

Our ISVA service gives you access to trained advisors who work completely independently of all other agencies, their only interest is in supporting you, they will work on your behalf to make sure you have all the relevant information you need, and if your case goes to court they will be there to support you throughout the trial and afterwards if you feel you need this.

Our counsellors work to BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) ethical guidelines. Counselling can give you the opportunity to explore your feelings within a comfortable and safe environment, helping you to understand and manage your own feelings and emotions. You will not be judged or offered advice by your counsellor but they will work with you to find ways of coping and help you take control of your life again.

We pride ourselves on delivering quality services that allow people who have experienced sexual violence and their families to make real and positive changes within their lives.

If you would like more information or to speak to someone in confidence our trained team can help, we are open Mon & Fri 8.30am to 4pm and Tue,Wed,Thur 8.30am to 7pm.
