Be the first to review

SERICC continues to offer our specialist sexual violence counselling and advocacy using telephone and online methods during the coronavirus government measures.

SERICC’s specialist Sexual Violence Counsellors can provide therapy to survivors of all forms of sexual violence, whether recent or a long time ago, regardless of age, gender and whether or not there is police involvement.  Where there is an open police case, or someone is considering reporting to the police, Independent Sexual Violence Advisers (ISVAs) are available to help survivors through the criminal justice process.

SERICC also delivers the Brighter Futures programmes for Thurrock children and families affected by sexual violence.

During this difficult time, you may want to access some of the helpful resources that are available on our website (sericc.org.uk)  for survivors of sexual violence and sexual abuse, and their supporters.

It’s normal to feel anxious, upset or stressed during a crisis. We also know that survivors of sexual violence and sexual abuse may be facing further challenges because of the restrictions currently in place.

Please contact us as usual on the SERICC number above or via Synergy Essex:
