Many organisations are able to provide a specialist advocacy service to survivors of sexual violence. The specially trained workers who deliver this service are sometimes referred to as ISVAs, which stands for Independent Sexual Violence Advisors or Advocates.
Savana has three ISVA's able to advise and support people who have been raped or sexually abused.
