Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs)

Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs)

Many specialist support agencies (including a considerable number of TST member agencies) offer an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA) service to victims of rape and sexual assault. The Independent Sexual Violence Advisor role was commissioned by Baroness Stern through the Home Office Violent Crime Unit in 2005.

An Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA) is trained to look after your needs, and to ensure that you receive care and understanding. They will help you understand how the criminal justice process works, and will explain things to you, such as what will happen if you report to the police, and the importance of forensic DNA retrieval.

An ISVA is there to provide you with information only, and you are not expected to report any offence to the police.
