SERICC works with relevant agencies and government bodies to inform policy and practice which aims to improve service provision for all victims and survivors of any form of sexual violence. SERICC aims to reduce barriers to support & justice.
SERICC works with a range of other agencies, including Essex Police, the Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC), Social Services, the NHS and other voluntary and community organisations.
Since 2015, SERICC has worked closely with CARA and Southend-on-Sea Rape Crisis (SOS Rape Crisis). Together we form the partnership Synergyessex to ensure services across the whole of Essex. From April 2016, Synergy Essex has delivered, on behalf of the Essex Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner specialist services across Essex.
As a partnership we work together delivering a number of projects including the pioneering “First Contact Navigators” project, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.
We are all members of Rape Crisis England & Wales and are approved under their National Service Standards and membership critera.
