Independent Sexual Violence Advisor

Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs) are specially trained to support victims of sexual violence and are able to offer practical and emotional support after you have been to the centre and leading up to and during a court case if required.

ISVA services for Herefordshire are provided by Herefordshire Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre and ISVA services for Worcestershire, Redditch, Bromsgrove and Kidderminster are provided by Worcestershire Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre. These two organisations are also known as West Mercia Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre. ISVA support in these areas is available for women, men and children aged 11+.


ISVA services for Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin are provided by Axis. ISVA support in these areas are also available for women, men and children aged 11+.


All ISVA services within West Mercia are free and confidential. If you haven't reported the assault to the Police or to The Glade you can access ISVA support by directly contacting West Mercia Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre or Axis. If you access The Glade's services a crisis worker will discuss ISVA support with you and with your consent will complete a referral to your local ISVA service.
