Amber Project

The Amber Project provides specialist support and advice for victims and their families who have experienced rape and sexual violence

This service also covers Leicester City, Leicestershire and Rutland and is available to men, women, young people and children who have experienced sexual violence, who do not wish to engage in the Criminal Justice system (CJS) or because the incident was historic or the CJS processes are complete, but support is still needed.

We also have specifically trained members of staff who can offer support to LGBTQ+ victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence
