High Demand for services & Impact of Covid-19

Synergy Essex , the Essex partnership of SERICC, Southend On Sea Rape Crisis and CARA (Centre for Action on Rape and Abuse) provides a single point of access to support all victims and survivors of sexual violence and sexual abuse across Thurrock, Southend and Essex.


We are experiencing high demand for our specialist sexual violence counselling and advocacy support across Essex and enquires from outside of our geographical areas.  Unfortunately we are not able to accept referrals for Hertfordshire or the London Boroughs, e.g. Havering, Redbridge, Enfield, Barking & Dagenham.


If you wish to make a self-referral for support services e.g. counselling or support with a police case (ISVA), please call and speak to one of our staff:

If you are from an organisation and wish to make a referral for sexual violence and abuse support services please go to https://www.dpmscloud.com/external/referralformorgessex
