You can use the form below to refer people that you are working with into the London Survivors Gateway. You must have obtained their consent in order to do this. The Gateway offers survivors of sexual violence aged 13+ independent advice and referral into specialist sexual violence services in London and is run by the Women and Girls Network.
The Gateway is able to make contact with individuals aged 13+ of any gender who have experienced sexual violence at any point in their lives. If you are unsure if your referral is suitable or have any further questions please contact us on 0808 801 0860 before completing this referral form.
Please not that we are not a crisis service and we cannot support clients who have immediate crisis needs in terms of their safety both internally and externally. We are currently experiencing peak demand and it can take us a number of weeks to get in touch with clients. As such, we ask that any immediate pressing needs are met outside of the Gateway before a referral is made to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the client. This includes all the appropriate safeguarding referrals.
Before you refer
If you are making a referral for someone who has been assaulted within the last 7 days and it is outside of office hours please contact the Havens directly on 020 3299 6900.
If the person you are referring has recently experienced or is currently experiencing domestic violence please confirm that you have also referred into domestic violence services and completed all necessary safeguarding referrals (including MARAC referrals if appropriate). We will be unable to process your referral without this.
Please ensure that the person you are referring would like support for their experience of being a victim/survivor of sexual violence specifically.
You must obtain consent from the person you are referring.
Information submitted on this referral form will be treated as confidential and stored securely on the Women and Girls Network data management system. Information is only shared with third parties with the explicit consent of the person being referred or if there is a risk of significant harm or safeguarding concerns.
