Before you begin

Click here to use the organisational referral form to refer someone you are supporting in a professional capacity.

We are a victim focused organisation and as such we do not accept referrals for anyone who is subject (the suspect) to an ongoing police investigation for sexual, domestic or violent offences, or for anyone who may pose a risk of harm to others. Please confirm that the person being referred does not pose a risk of harm to others, and is not known to Police regarding violent or sexual offences (tick box)*  

This referral cannot be submitted unless the above information is confirmed. By ticking this box, you and the person being referred agree for checks to be made regarding their risk status. Essex Rape Crisis Partnership reserve the right to refuse the provision of services.

Self-referring means you can contact us directly to access support.

There are just a few steps for you to take to help us offer you the right support.

To self-refer, fill out the information and click the 'Submit form' button. The form will be sent securely to Essex Rape Crisis Partnership. When we have received it one of our staff team will give you a call to arrange a first meeting. At this appointment you will have the opportunity to receive information about our services. This is when you can ask any questions to help you decide about the type of support you would like to receive.

Required fields are shown in red. You will not be able to submit the form if you do not complete the mandatory field and tick the above tick box relating to risk.
