About this cause
South Essex Rape and Incest Crisis Centre (SERICC) has been supporting victims and survivors in Thurrock for over 30 years. Our specialist service has worked with women, men, young people and children who have experienced any form of sexual abuse at any time of their lives. The support SERICC offers is often a life-line for victims and survivors to receive counselling and advocacy support. SERICC offers free and confidential support and information to anyone who has experienced sexual violence and sexual abuse no matter when it occurred; whether recently or in the past. This year we have supported victims and survivors from 2 years old to 79 years old.
How this cause brings people in the community together
In these days of technology, we need to make sure that our services are available. Many of you will be familiar with apps that you use in your daily life for shopping or looking up train times. We want our app to support the wellbeing, mental health and offer self-help to sexual abuse victims and survivors.
