Are you concerned about a friend, colleague or family member?

Is someone you care about in an abusive relationship?

Has someone you love been affected by rape or sexual abuse?

You are not alone. We understand.

 

Please be aware that from 1st April 2021, some services currently provided by RISE under contract with Brighton & Hove and East Sussex Commissioners, are being replaced by similar services which will be delivered by Victim Support and Stonewater. These providers will take over and ensure the running of the following existing services:


• 1-1 Casework
• Refuge
• Specialist support for LGBTQ+ and BME survivors
• Some groups and workshops

RISE will continue to operate a Helpline service, ReGroup and other group supports, as well as a Therapy and Counselling service. Please visit the RISE website for future updates and relevant information:


Any referrals submitted to RISE via this route will automatically be triaged to Victim Support from 1st April if RISE have not been in contact with you by 31st March. This means that Victim Support may be in contact with you (or your client, if you are a professional making a referral) to offer advice, support and further assessment.


By submitting this referral and/or request for support you confirm that you are aware of the above information, and consent to contact from Victim Support/Stonewater.


For further information about the new service providers please visit their websites: victimsupport.org.uk and stonewater.org
