Who else can help?

In Coventry and Warwickshire there are a number of independent agencies who we work closely with who can provide you with counselling and an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA).

  • Confidential and impartial advice that is not linked to the police.
  • Regular and ongoing telephone contact.
