RASA Merseyside. Supporting individuals affected by sexual violence.
RASA provide essential crisis and therapeutic support to individuals who have been affected by sexual violence at any time in their lives.
RASA offer specialised counselling, support and an Independent Sexual Violence Advocacy (ISVA) service related to sexual violence.
The ISVA Service specialises in providing support through the Criminal Justice process. This service is available for survivors of all ages who have experienced any form of sexual violence whether it is recent or in the past.
RASA also offer the opportunity to provide anonymous intelligence in relation to sexual violence cases for those individuals who do not want to make a formal complaint.
RASA offer telephone and e-mail support via our helpline which can be accessed on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 6pm and 8pm, on Fridays between 12 and 2pm and on Sundays between 1pm and 3pm.
