Improvement of access to SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre) by raising awareness of SARC and SARC Services through promotional and development work across Cleveland

Helen Britton House is the SARC for the Cleveland Police area. The SARC is a partnership working arrangement providing a SARC model of practice for victims of Rape and Sexual Assault regardless of whether or not the victim wishes to report to the Police.

The SARC model for victims across Cleveland was introduced in 2007 following financial support from the then Cleveland Police Authority and the 4 Tees Primary Care Trusts (PCTs).

This proposal is to address the staffing requirements of SARC in order to facilitate sufficient and appropriate compliment of staff to enable service promotion and development across Cleveland. It also incorporates proposal for video link equipment which will facilitate access to Court for vulnerable victims who cannot attend the court building

If successful the proposal would allow for:

  • Routine/regular on site development days for forensic examiners
  • Routine/regular input to Police training and development days
  • The production of a SARC Newsletter/bulletin
  • SARC representation at key meetings
  • SARC involvement in regional developments (e.g. agreeing standards)
  • SARC representation at promotional events
  • Availability of staff to deliver presentations promoting SARC
  • Strengthening the SARC position within the network of ISVA’s
  • Partaking in ISVA promotion and development work
  • Video link to court for vulnerable witnesses
