First Light awarded ISVA contract for Swindon and Wiltshire

First Light is pleased to announce it has been successful in the bid to provide the Independent Sexual Violence Advisory (ISVA) service for Swindon and Wiltshire.

Following a competitive tender process, First Light was awarded a five-year contract from the office of the Wiltshire Police and Crime Commissioner, which will commence on 1 April 2023.

The ISVA service provides support for anyone who has experienced rape or sexual abuse recently, or in the past. Support is available whether someone has already reported an incident to the Police, or if they are looking for advice and support on the options available to them.

Lyn Gooding, Chief Executive of First Light, said: “We are delighted First Light was selected as the ISVA service provider in Swindon and Wiltshire. As we already run the Swindon and Wiltshire Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC), this latest contract will help to provide a smooth transition for our clients as they move from one service to another.”

First Light accepts referrals from professionals or people who wish to self-refer into the service. You can do this here or for more information contact the referral advice line on 0300 373 2715.
