Refer Someone

If you are a professional supporting a survivor of sexual violence, you can refer them to our services here.

Once you have referred a client for support (link below), the Welcome Team will contact them to carry out an initial assessment. Based on this assessment, we will refer them to appropriate services within Survivors’ Network and externally. A good starting point for your client is the ‘Get Help’ section of the website which has a range of resources that might be useful.
