The London Survivors Gateway is not a crisis service and we do not deliver ongoing support services . We explain what services are available in particular areas and make detailed referrals into available services.
Due to a high demand for our service, there is usually a delay between making a referral and you or the person you have referred being contacted. We understand that at the point survivors seek help they are in need of support as quickly as possible.
If you have not been assaulted in the last 7 days but feel that you cannot wait to obtain support you may wish to:
- Look at our service map to find out what services are available and make contact with services in your area directly.
- Look at our resource page to find out if there are any self-help resources that you can use whilst you are waiting.
- Speak to your GP, explaining that you have been referred into specialist services but that you are waiting for ongoing support and there will be a waiting list.
- Use existing helplines and webchat services for emotional support so that you can speak with someone who understands the impact of sexual violence about how you are feeling.
