Early Childhood Partnership – Onyx Independent Sexual Violence Advocacy Service

The Onyx service helps anyone who has been the victim of unwanted sexual contact, at any time in their lives. They offer confidential, practical and emotional support to those who have experienced rape, sexual violence, sexual harassment, sexual abuse, trafficking and exploitation, harmful practices or childhood sexual abuse/exploitation – whether recent or non-recent. Those referred do not have to be working with police to receive ISVA support.

Their service is available to men, women, children and families, regardless of whether you have told the police or anyone else about the attack.
