Eligibility and access to the service is based on the following criteria and is informed in every case by a needs assessment, risk assessment and where required a therapeutic assessment:


> We offer specialist support and therapy to those who have been affected by rape, sexual abuse and domestic violence abuse, recent or in the past.
> We work with children, young people, families and adults across North and West Cumbria (and in partnership with the Birchall Trust in South Cumbria)

> We do not normally work with perpetrators of abuse, recent or in the past. If these issues are present we will look at individuals on a case by case basis, before a decision is made.
> We do not provide crisis intervention; those referred must be safe from harm.
