We are delighted to have our new Independent Sexual Violence Advocate on board. Ifana will be working with people who have experienced rape or sexual abuse, and their families, to offer emotional and practical support. Ifana’s main role is to offer advocacy to her clients. She can liaise with solicitors, the police, agencies or indeed anyone clients need her to. Ifana is also able to help clients through the process of going to court. This is often a very difficult time for clients and Ifana will be there to make the process that much easier. Any statutory or voluntary agency can make a referral for someone to work with Ifana. Alternatively, clients can refer themselves or get a friend to make the call for them.
