Women and Girls Network Sexual Violence Helpline

Free and confidential emotional support for anyone in London, who self identifies as a woman (aged 14 years+), and who has been affected by any form of sexual violence at any time in their lives.

Our specialist team of women will offer you a safe space to explore your feelings in your own way. When you call us we will believe you. We will treat you with respect and we won’t judge you.

We will offer you information and advice and link you to specialist services, such as counselling and practical support. We won’t tell you what to do, but will guide you to consider your options.

You can access the Helpline anonymously. Helpline calls are free and do not show on your phone bill.

We also support the friends and families of survivors, and other professionals, to understand how best to support survivors of sexual violence.

Our team speak several languages and can access phone interpreting.

The Helpline is accessible for Deaf or hard of hearing people via Text Relay.
