Calls will cost you standard rate charge on your land line or mobile ‘phone. All of our Helpline support workers(including volunteers) are trained to listen and support callers within the centre.
They can offer you time to talk about your experiences of sexual and/or domestic abuse and the way your experiences have affected you.
You will be treated with respect and without judgement.
Sharing what has happened to you can help to reduce your isolation;and to give you the experience of being believed.
Our Helpline support workers can discuss with you options for other support and help you may want.They can take details from you to refer you to other services within the centre such as Counselling, or Advocacy and Support from our Independent Sexual Violence Advisor.
We can also provide you with information for other agencies and services which you may need.
Importantly the Helpline can also be used during the time you may be waiting for counselling or other services.
There may be at times when your feelings overwhelm you and we are here to listen and offer you the help you need.
