Supporting you in your next steps


SERICC provides an ISVAA service to adults, young people and children who have been victims of all forms of sexual violence and abuse across South and West Essex. 


ISVAA support


If you have reported or are considering reporting to the police and would like ISVAA support, you can refer yourself to our ISVAA service using our online self-referral form or you can telephone us on 01375 380609 and we will arrange for an ISVAA to return your call as soon as they can. If you are calling out of office hours, or if we are unable to answer the phone, calls will go to answerphone, we would encourage you to leave a message.  A poster for you to download is available here 


Crown Prosecution Service guidance


The Crown Prosecution Service have produced leaflets and other resources explaining what you can expect to happen once a crime has been reported. Please visit CPS site for more information.




GPs, social workers, mental health workers or other professionals can refer clients for services through our online referral form for professionals.
