To make a referral to the South Yorkshire Sexual Violence Partnership ISVA service please continue to complete our referral form.
Please find the below list of contact details of organisations who can provide support.
The South Yorkshire Independent Sexual Violence Service (ISVA) offers specialist confidential practical help and emotional support for individuals who have been raped or sexually assaulted at any time in their lives.
We are an inclusive service and support all ages and genders; support is available whether or not you have chosen to report to the police and seek justice for the abuse.
For those that are considering reporting, we know that the idea of talking to the Police about what happened to you or giving evidence in court can be frightening and overwhelming, but we also know that survivors of sexual violence want and deserve justice.
Our ISVAs are specially trained to provide this support and will stay with you throughout your journey through the criminal justice system and beyond.
The South Yorkshire Sexual Violence Partnership provides ISVA services across Rotherham, Doncaster , Sheffield and Barnsley. All referrals are received centrally by the Sheffield Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (SRASAC) and then directed on to the relevant local service.
The first step to access ISVA Support is to complete our referral form which asks for personal information about you and how best to contact you. It would help us to help you, if you list as many ways as possible that we can contact you.
Once we receive a referral the ISVA team in your area will make contact within two working days. if you have any difficulties completing the form, please call SRASAC on 0114 2412766
The ISVA/CHISVA support service funded by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner is delivered as part of the South Yorkshire Sexual Violence Partnership (SYSVP) made up of SRASAC, Rothacs, DRASACS and BSARCS. Although supported by one of the local service contract providers as this is a partnership some information sharing between these parties is essential for effective service delivery.
SYSVP is required to collect and retain personal and sensitive information about service users under legal and contractual obligations, all data will be securely stored, archived and destroyed following general data protection guidelines and used for monitoring, income generation, and quality assurance which will include statistical analysis and reporting.
We will not share personal or identifiable information about service users unless there are legitimate reasons for doing so. These could include concerns over safeguarding or a legal obligation (for example a court subpoena) where we are ordered by a court to release information.
As a service user, you can request to see what information we hold about you, our local data policies and request to have the information removed.
SYSVP is registered with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO)
